Invest in Ohio’s Financial Services Innovation


Why Ohio? Ohio is second only to New York City for the number of top U.S. bank and insurance company headquarters.

Sophisticated, experienced and digital-savvy talent is abundant; a low cost of living compared to other digital hubs means an unmatched cost advantage; and Ohio supports a collaborative banking, insurance and financial services environment to foster innovation across the state. Investing in Ohio means:

  • Easy access to innovation collaboration. A two-hour direct flight or array of transportation options connects you to about 75 percent of the North American financial services industry, including Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 headquarters.
  • Big opportunity, low cost. Commercial rent is ¼ the cost of New York City and employees also benefit from a great lifestyle for less.
  • Bringing talent to your company’s doorstep. Ohio universities produce 35,000 graduates annually - both millennials and not - including innovation leaders in banking, insurance and financial services.
  • Fintech innovation initiatives. Fintech71, a global fintech accelerator focused on entrepreneurial growth in fintech innovation, is based in Ohio. 

Ohio is the premier location for businesses given its financial services, innovation network, abundant tech-savvy talent and top-rated banking business climate.

Ohio’s fintech accelerator, Fintech71, closes out its first year. The program welcomed several exceptional companies from across the globe, some who had previous experience with Ohio and others who did not. Ohio’s fintech and financial services benefits during the program proved to be valuable resources.

Paycor is a perfect example of a fintech company that transformed itself from a small homegrown Ohio startup into a large, fast-growing and innovative human resources and payroll solutions company with customers in all 50 states. Due to Paycor’s rapid growth, it outgrew its relatively new office building in Norwood.
