Amid a wave of nationwide tech layoffs, tech hubs like Columbus, Ohio are still seeing growth and hiring for the future.
There’s little doubt Columbus, Ohio is becoming one of the fastest growing tech hubs – not just in the Midwest, but in the country. And with that comes the challenges of finding and hiring a proper workforce. Now in 2022, Columbus is a growing ecosystem of tech talent, startup pros, active venture capital firms, and Silicon Valley expats.
Like its Midwest neighbors, Columbus got its start as a major manufacturing hub in the early 20th century. To this day, Ohio is still home to much of the country’s manufacturing jobs, but over the years the Columbus economy has shifted toward financial institutions, major retailers, and healthcare companies.
