Cleveland’s JumpStart hosted its fourth annual StartUp ScaleUp conference today to celebrate the region’s entrepreneurs.

The day-long event featured panels and interactive activities facilitating entrepreneurial growth, funding and finding talent. 

Cleveland’s startup community received direct feedback on the entrepreneurial ecosystem last week at the Cleveland City Club.

TechStars’ Chris Heivly and team analyzed different aspects of Northeast Ohio’s entreprenuership environment. They analyzed five different categories comprised of culture, density, talent, capital and institutional support.

The winners will be mentored by Plug and Play and Cleveland Clinic for three months at the Global Center for Health Innovation.
