Business Friendly Environment

Get Connected to Northeast Ohio’s Business Friendly Environment

The Cleveland Plus region has a network of supportive economic development agencies, corporate partners and business and community leaders that help companies make the connections they need. This integrated network is a driving force behind our region’s business friendly environment.

The Northeast Ohio Advantage:

Our proximity to North American markets keeps shipping times and costs low. And the cost of doing business – whether for real estate or workforce – is lower here than in most other major US cities.

Moreover, Ohio boasts one of the most business friendly climates in the nation, earning a top 10 spot in Site Selection Magazine’s 2017 ranking of states with the best business climates. And, Cleveland Plus boasts an impressive variety of incentive offerings – such as the $2.1 billion Ohio Third Frontier, an internationally recognized economic development initiative that provides funding to Ohio technology-based companies to create new products, companies, industries, and jobs.
