OhioXcelerate launched in 2023, accepting three startups to our pitch program. These startups hailed from across the state and interacted with a group of over 20 mentors during a half day virtual summit. The 2024 OhioXcelerate programming is an expanded approach to increase interaction with mentors and support organizations across the state. The 2024 program will be accepting four total participants and will culminate at the Ohio Tech Summit on May 16th in Columbus, where participants will share their pitch live.
