Columbus is a Top 10 Tech Town

Columbus, Ohio is the capital of the state and is one of the fastest growing metros in the United States. Recently, the U.S. Census Bureau said Columbus had the seventh largest population bump in the U.S. among large cities and the biggest gain of any Midwest city. The region is preparing for a projected 1 million new residents in the next 30 years, many of which are expected to be in the technology space. In the past eight years Columbus has added over 150,000 net new jobs to the economy and it is not slowing down.

The Central Ohio Region is also the headquarters for major national and international brands, including Huntington Bank, Nationwide Insurance, Cardinal Health, White Castle restaurants, Wendy’s restaurants, Victoria’s Secret, Abercrombie and Fitch, Safelite Autoglass, The Ohio State University, and most offices of the state government. These companies employ thousands of technology workers and are well known for innovation. Columbus is also the home to a major technology hub for JP Morgan Chase. According to a recent study by SmartAsset, Columbus is the top U.S. city for tech workers. The study found that over 4% of all workers in Columbus work in tech, and that those workers make about 1.8 times what non-tech workers do. Columbus is a great place to live, and work!
