Anchored by Ohio’s major metropolitan areas, the state is comprised of six geographic regions with specific industry strengths and resources. Together, they form The JobsOhio Network, a partnership of development professionals with the local contacts and expertise you need.

The JobsOhio Network will help you explore expansion or relocation options, connect you with available funding, and plug you in with leaders who are experiencing success in these regions. No one knows more about the sites, the resources, and the people of these areas like our network partners.
