People’s Liberty will only last five years. After that, its ambitions—creating a stronger, better Cincinnati—will persist only through the actions of the 105 individuals it funded and mentored. It’s kind of an experiment, which is why the company brands itself as a philanthropic lab.
Consumer-focused startups need to be brand focused. That’s the driving idea behind The Brandery, a seed stage startup accelerator leveraging Cincinnati's branding and marketing talent to help turn minimally viable products into sustainable businesses. The Seed Accelerator Rankings Project lists The Brandery at the Gold tier, just under Platinum where you’ll find 500 Startups and Y Combinator.
Cincinnati-based accelerator First Batch isn’t helping companies develop apps, platforms, or services. It’s focusing exclusively on startups that want to scale the production of physical products. Companies with a prototype can apply to the 20-week program to learn how to navigate the manufacturing, branding, and marketing resources Cincinnati offers. Why Cincinnati? Ohio ranks third in the nation in manufacturing, and the Cincinnati metro area is second in the state.
