Exploring Cincinnati’s advantages for Israeli businesses
More than 6,200 miles separate the Cincinnati region from Israel. While the two areas might appear to be worlds apart, celebrating what connects them will be the focus of an event Friday morning. The program is being held at the law offices of Thompson Hine, and will feature a panel of speakers addressing the key clusters that both regions share. They include: high tech manufacturing, life sciences, digital technology, and water technology.
The Cincinnati USA Partnership continues to target Israel for business recruitment, and the event's panelists will include business leaders who are "on the ground" making further growth possible. They include Marc Cole, CEO of Ridgeback Business Development, Ltd. in Israel. "Cincinnati USA's central location provides a significant advantage to Israeli companies looking to penetrate U.S. markets," said Cole. "Cincinnati's strong connectivity, pro-business culture and low operating costs, significantly support a growing company's go-to-market strategy," he added.
The event is Friday, April 19, from 8:30-10 a.m. at the Thompson Hine Event Room, 312 Walnut Street, 14th Floor. There is no cost to attend, but you must register in advance. To do so, call Erin Walker at the Chamber at 513.579.3133 or contact her at email@example.com.
