It’s not just about creating diverse teams, but also about taking advantage of the Backyard Effect to build inclusive entrepreneurship opportunities for woman and minority owned businesses here in Columbus.

We’d like to help educate and connect these businesses and leaders to the initiatives and opportunities right here in Central Ohio.
