Entrepreneurship is the single largest job creator in America. For Columbus to continue growing and thriving as a leader in business, we have to support entrepreneurs in our community. We are here to do just that. StartUP Columbus is a business incubator focused on helping entrepreneurs where they currently are and where they hope to go.
Although entrepreneurs come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, we can support startups at any level. Are you in the ideation phase? Go through our CO.STARTERS cohort. Are you running your business and need help with resources, networking, and connectivity? Maybe joining our Incubator Program is right for you.

Do you have the next idea to change the world? Get connected with our experts, mentors, and investment programming to grow and scale your business.
Beyond these options, we provide our entrepreneurs with a plethora of resources.
