Believe in Ohio STEM Commercialization and Entrepreneurship Forums

While largely unknown to Ohio’s students and residents, the State of Ohio has one of the most vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystems in the country. Many of the leading STEM research and development programs in the world are in Ohio. There are dozens of venture development organizations, incubators and commercialization initiatives throughout Ohio that support Ohio’s Innovation Economy.  Virtually every major Ohio college and university now has a significant entrepreneurship program for their students.


During 2014 and 2015, Believe in Ohio held 15 STEM Forums throughout Ohio attended by more than 4,000 Ohio students, teachers and others in which more than 100 of Ohio’s leading STEM innovators and entrepreneurs told their stories and shared their visions of the future.

During 2016, there will be many additional STEM forums held throughout Ohio.  Believe in Ohio will announce these new forums as they are scheduled.

In addition to this video gallery, these videos are also the cornerstone of Track D of the "Introduction to the Innovation Economy of Ohio" free online course.  For more information about the online course, click here.
