Gallery Hop for Start-ups Includes NKY Stops
On Thursday, July 23, Cintrifuse and its partners will host the first ever NewCo Cincinnati event to showcase the people who are making the city a global destination for entrepreneurial success. The goal is to bridge the gap between students and young professionals who can help spur future job growth and the startups looking to hire the best and brightest local talent.
This one-day event features presentations and office tours from 50 startup companies in the Cincinnati region. Attendees get up close and personal with high-growth companies and arts organizations, and are able to choose a schedule that fits their personal interests. One event will take place in the brand new 84.51 building in downtown Cincinnati. It features a panel moderated by Fast Company and PC World writer Jared Newman, where the CEO's of Strap and Kapture will discuss the wearables market and starting up wearables companies in Cincinnati.
Here are some additional details about the event:
