Columbus, Ohio, USA (2014)
Tuesday, December 10, 2013

clientuploads/Images/Columbus-Skyline-2-300.gifThe capital of the state of Ohio, Columbus combines great strengths with significant challenges.  It is the home of two multi-billion-dollar institutions: Ohio State University (OSU), one of America’s largest research universities, and Battelle, the world’s biggest private research institute.  Fifteen of America’s largest companies make their home there, as do award-winning museums, science centers and libraries.  Multiple commercial broadband providers serve the metropolitan area, and public-sector networks provide government and academia with even more advanced capabilities.  But OSU lags nearly all of its peers in commercialization income and patents per research dollar.  The city has a large low-income population stranded by the decline of manufacturing employment and ranks 46th out of the 50 largest American cities for upward social mobility.  Per-capita income has declined over the past decade and unemployment, while below the US average, is a fact of life for too many citizens, while companies struggle to find properly-qualified workers to fill open positions.
