Investors from all across the nation continue to discover Northeast Ohio’s investment opportunities. Since 2004, 161 equity investors have put money into Northeast Ohio companies, with 28 out-of-state funds making first-time investments in Northeast Ohio in 2012. The diversity of the companies successfully raising funds–from a ABSMaterials, a developer of reactive glass products and nanosands for water remediation to GenomOncology, a company whose software and analytical tools can rapidly analyze and interpret sequenced genomic data—speaks to the breadth of startup talent in the region.
