Dublin, Marysville ‘Beta District’ could become Ohio’s version of Silicon Valley

DUBLIN, Ohio (WCMH) — Silicon Valley might be the tech-hub of the nation, but the next wave of innovation in the country could happen right here in Central Ohio.

“When we think, ‘Why here?’ versus, ‘Why?’ some of the other economies, some of the other cities, it’s really the ecosystem that we promote,” explains Jake Kaufman from Adept Marketing.

“This high-tech corridor is something that really underlines the importance of this northwest quadrant to the Columbus region,” says Eric Phillips, the Director of Economic Development for Union County.
