The Cincinnati innovation hub 1819 plans to expand to 400,000 square feet with a new $250 million expansion. It already is supported by the major players in the Cincy region: University of Cincinnati, Proctor & Gamble, Kroger, Fifth Third, CincyTech, VentureLab, Worldplay, Cincinnati Bell, Kingsgate Logistics and Cincinnati Insurance companies.
Meanwhile back in Cleveland. We have an empty Medical Innovation Center and several groups working at cross purposes to build more siloed innovation centers. Can’t we please get it together?!
