High-Tech Businesses Thrive Under Ohio’s Business Culture
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 20, 2007
Business leaders are discovering that Ohio offers an ideal environment for success in high-tech computer advancements for the global marketplace. According to the Ohio Business Development Coalition (OBDC), the nonprofit organization that markets the state for capital investment, high-tech businesses thrive and grow under Ohio’s supportive business culture and unique micro-metropolitan environment, providing executives the time to pursue their personal aspirations.
Executives at Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), a statewide organization that provides reliable high performance computing and networking infrastructure expertise, are leveraging Ohio’s unique qualities and transforming them into success in the technology industry. Through a variety of education and business initiatives, OSC makes the computational power of Ohio’s largest computer cluster available for academic, technical and research applications.
One initiative is “Blue Collar Computing,” a program that provides small to mid-size Ohio businesses with high-end computer tools and training helping them to optimize their time and resources for profitable growth.
“Ohio has an amazing network of universities and well-trained workers,” said Stan Ahalt, executive director of OSC. “Our state partnerships allow us to achieve leadership positions in progressive technology, information systems and advanced industries by educating businesses to compete in today’s high-tech industries.”
With short commutes and less stress, Ahalt and his family have more time to enjoy their favorite activities and take advantage of the state’s many cultural and recreational opportunities. An avid photographer, Ahalt enjoys the state’s many metro parks where he photographs Ohio’s wildlife. “Whatever you want, you’ll find it in Ohio,” said Ahalt.
Ahalt is the latest business leader featured in the “Why Ohio?” advertising campaign, a series highlighting prominent executives in a variety of industries who have found business and personal success in Ohio. The ad first appeared in the Wall Street Journal June 18.
“The state’s aggressive, profitable business programs, access to a well-trained workforce and direct market access are coupled with a unique micro-metropolitan city structure. These benefits help ensure business success, leaving more time for executives to pursue their personal aspirations,” said Ed Burghard, executive director of the Ohio Business Development Coalition. “Ohio is the state of perfect balance.”
