HCDC

It is getting easier to find the resources to launch a business with the help of a number of local incubators that provide seed money and mentoring. But growing a business through second stage development remains a challenge. Now, economic development and business incubator HCDC Inc. has launched an Office of Innovation + Creativity program to help established companies continue to grow.

A Cincinnati tech start-up supported by Cintrifuse has received a large investment from a pair of venture capitalist firms. 

"Everything But The House" is an online estate auction and consignment company, which now has the backing by firms that also supported Twitter and tumblr.  

Tim Schigel with Cintrifuse says the investment shows Cincinnati is becoming a good place for start-ups.
