This is Lindsay Karas Stencel’s annual talk on “The State of Venture in Ohio.” As in past years, Lindsay will walk attendees through the status of VC funding in the state, discussing new venture fund formation, large exits, and investments and places where Ohio can continue to develop and grow. She will weave in some pop culture references, leave plenty of time for Q&A, and definitely keep the FUN in FUND.
