The State of the Columbus Startup Community brought together top Columbus tech leaders to share the secrets behind this rapidly growing startup community and showcase amazing job opportunities.
We heard from Mark Kvamme (co-founder of Drive Capital), Kristy Campbell (COO of Rev1 Ventures), Catherine Allshouse (CIO of Veeva Systems), Densil Porteous (CEO of Pride Fund 1), Tim Trad (Creative Director at Path Robotics and founder and CEO of OnlyInCbus) and more.
After the virtual discussions, we hosted a virtual career fair to connect job seekers with top hiring companies in Columbus.
Okay, so we know that it doesn't involve flying out of job cannon into jobland where jobs grow on jobies, but sometimes finding a job can feel just like that. The virtual career fair at the State of the Columbus Startup Community event is design to make it feel the opposite of that — aka, easy.
If you missed the career fair, you can still apply to these hiring companies!
