Greater Columbus, the third fastest growing major metropolitan statistical area (MSA) in the Midwest, is at the heart of the largest concentration of population and economic activity in North America. That growth is evident not only through the extensive development boom the region has experienced since the early 1980s, but also by the number of new businesses that start here each year.
Columbus has a thriving arts and culture community and serves as home for two professional sports teams and The Ohio State University. The patchwork of Central Ohio communities, each with its own distinct character and offerings, makes it possible to see distinct style changes within a 15-minute walk. Its history, artists, sports organizations, high-fashion industry and college life make Columbus a great place to live and work.
