Columbus will grow its economy by ensuring that existing companies are growing and thriving, that the world’s leading companies are attracted to the region, and that innovations are cultivated and commercialized. The Columbus Partnership is leading this effort through Columbus 2020 – a regional, public-private partnership leveraging central Ohio’s research and academic institutions and diverse industries to position the state capital to become the fastest growing economy in the country and one of the nation’s leaders in economic development.

Setting High Goals

When it launched in 2010, Columbus 2020 set four bold goals to accomplish by the year 2020:

  • Add 150,000 net new jobs
  • Increase personal per capita income by 30%
  • Add $8 billion of capital investment
  • Be recognized as a national leader in economic development.

As we rapidly approach the year 2020, we are on track to only meet, but to surpass all of these goals.

One of US Campaign

The Columbus Region is filled with organizations that are one-of-a-kind. We are more than the sum of our parts because of a shared mission to keep the Columbus Region smart, vibrant and growing. That’s why so many excel as One of US.
