"Ohio's strength goes beyond research and development, allowing both companies and entrepreneurs a chance to validate their technologies and get them out in the marketplace," said Mark Collar, chairman of the Third Frontier Project Advisory Board. "Ohio has world-class capabilities in advanced design, advanced materials, and advanced manufacturing, combined with outstanding clinical and validation capabilities, a growing venture capital base, and managerial talent with commercial experience. The state's culture of collaboration between academic institutions, entrepreneurs and companies in these business sectors really makes any ambition achievable."
"Businesses are realizing the opportunities and resources the state of Ohio offers for success in the advanced materials," continued Burghard. "In addition to world-class academic research facilities, business owners profit from the state's newly revamped tax code as well as the bottom-line benefits of better work:life balance for their employees. Ohio offers low-cost, low stress communities and a unique tapestry of micropolitan and metropolitan cities. This diversity provides executives and employees the resources and time to pursue their professional goals and personal aspirations without having to sacrifice one for the other. Ohio truly is the state of perfect balance."
