Columbus2020 Plots Regional Growth

Columbus2020, a regional public-private partnership encompassing 11 central Ohio counties has set ambitious goals to be realized by 2020.

According to Kenny McDonald, Columbus2020’s chief economic officer, the organization has embarked on a long-term effort to create the economy of the future by leveraging the region’s open, young and diverse culture as a key competitive advantage.

In a recent Ohio News Network interview, McDonald outlined 2020 goals that include adding 150,000 net jobs; increasing personal per capita income by 30 percent; and adding $8 billion dollars in capital investment.

The region has many assets to promote. It is the 15th largest city in the United States, a leading research hub, the country’s third largest capital city, boasts the nation’s number one research institute, Battelle, and has three amenities that rank number one in the country – the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, COSI Columbus and the Huntington Park.

Innovate New Albany, the city’s incubator for technology startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses, features 16,000 square feet of space within the New Albany Business Park’s Signature Office Building, 8000 Walton Parkway.
