Entrepreneurs play a key role in our regional economy. They drive innovation, attract talent and spur growth in new industries. In February Ray Leach, CEO of Jumpstart Inc. located in Northeast Ohio, spoke to regional business leaders about the power of entrepreneurs in revitalizing local economies. In 2003, Northeast Ohio was facing an exodus of jobs and wealth. Community leaders came together and formed JumpStart Inc. an organization charged with creating economic transformation in Northeast Ohio through the growth of an entrepreneurial ecosystem.

JumpStart Inc. became a tremendous success in Northeast Ohio and Ray Leach believes that the same entrepreneurial ecosystem can be created in Northern Indiana. Watch the video below to learn more about the opportunity for igniting entrepreneurship in our community and to hear Ray Leach speak about the role of business in bringing about transformative change in a community.
