Northwest Ohio Impact Program

Are you interested in taking your business to the next level? If so, our Northwest Ohio Impact Program can provide you with the tools to do so.

Twice a year, a cohort of five high-potential businesses join the Northwest Ohio Impact Program, an intensive 12-week business assistance program designed to provide focused business advising, industry-specific mentoring and collaborative learning. Over the course of these 12 weeks, the cohort will work intensively on various key business issues, with significant emphasis on financial projections and capital pitches.

The Impact Program then culminates in a demo day-style competition where the entire cohort will pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to take home up to $10,000 to grow their businesses (all other cohort participants receive $2,500).

Check back soon! Applications for the Fall 2021 Cohort will open later this year.
