Calling all Ohio-based startups in the technology industry—this one’s for you! What stage are you at in your company’s growth? If you’re in the early stages, how are you moving your business forward in growth and development? How are you funding your business to move to the next stage? If you haven’t figured it out yet, securing funding could be the next step to propel your startup forward. But where do you start?
Start here. At Valley Growth Ventures, we’ve crafted the recipe to move early-stage businesses to high-growth companies across the state of Ohio. As a $6 million micro venture capital investment fund, we’ve partnered with exceptional startups in the tech and medical fields to increase their financial footprint and place them on the path to greater success.
As an example of Valley Growth Venture’s value creation, in 2018, the firm invested in partner MedPilot, a health tech company focused on enhancing provider and patient communication to transform the patient experience. During the partnership, MedPilot gained new business relationships through Valley Growth Ventures’ network, marketing support to reach a wider audience of clientele, and guidance and expertise to navigate business challenges. In March 2021, MedPilot became the fund’s first investment exit, as the company was successfully acquired by New Jersey-based Vytalize Health.

Seen as a business-friendly state, Ohio attracts global investment and fosters growth through a simplified tax structure, affordability, and diversification.
