Road Trip With Purpose

1,000 jobs. 1,000 jobseekers. 1,000 miles.

In the Midwest, boomerangs are returning to the region to start companies, live sustainably, and find meaning in their work. VC firms are taking notice and investing heavily in middle of the country states. Startup communities across the Midwest are exploding. 

That's why we're setting out on our first-ever road trip to explore all that's putting these startup cities on the map. And we want you to virtually join us to talk shop, connect, find jobs, and celebrate all that these Midwest cities have to offer.

Discover what it's like to live, work & tech in the nation's top emerging startup cities.

First Stop Recap: Detroit and Ann Arbor

We partnered with our friends at Detroit Venture Partners to showcase all things living, working & tech in the Detroit and Ann Arbor communities. After the panels, we hosted a virtual startup and tech career fair to help job seekers easily access top startup jobs in Detroit and Ann Arbor.

It was so great to virtually see new and old friends joining the event, and we're still geeking out over all the amazing insights our panelists shared at the discussions. If you missed the event, you can catch the full recap here and the complete recording here 👇

The Purpose Jobs crew teamed up with OhioX, One Columbus, Drive Capital, TechLife Columbus, Pride Fund 1 and Ohio Impact Fund to virtually host the State of the Columbus Startup Community. And it was an incredible afternoon!

Top leaders from throughout the Columbus startup ecosystem came together to discuss the growth of the community, why tech workers are choosing Columbus, and where we go from here.
