About the Area

Okay, we might certainly be biased as Columbus is where the Vortechs Group calls home but there are few cities in this country that offer all the amenities and opportunities that Columbus does with the low cost of living. There’s a thriving downtown with exciting neighborhoods, sprawling suburbs where people still come together for community festivals and school activities, even opportunities to live on acreage, if that’s what you’d prefer.

The economy is stable and unemployment is low due to its diversification of job opportunities. Columbus is home to a strong academic presence, government, retail, hospitality industry, and healthcare.

The city is also only about a two-hour drive to Cincinnati and Cleveland, which make wonderful weekend getaways.


But don’t take our word for it about this incredible opportunity. Read the The Ohio State University AVP Technolgy Transfer Position Specification document, then contact us if you’re interested.
