Fifth Annual Innovation Hop | Rev1

Once of Columbus’ premier business events, Rev1 Ventures’ Innovation Hop was last night. I had the chance, along with a thousand others, to check out their portfolio of companies’ products and services as well as talking with a bunch of friends. Oh…and I got a t-shirt.

Here’s a bit more about the event as was shared on their eventbrite invitation:

The buzz about Columbus’ startup scene continues to grow. More tech-enabled, high-growth companies are being built here than ever before! On April 4, we will be opening our doors to showcase more than 50 startups, spinouts, and corporate innovation teams. Plus, the food and local brews/spirits will be phenomenal, as always.

Please join us as we celebrate the companies – and partners – supporting these efforts.

For additional parking, please park across the street from Rev1 at 1314 Kinnear Rd.

Here’s a sneak peek at a handful of the 50+ startups you will meet.

  • ScriptDrop, an integrated prescription delivery, and medication reminder service

  • The Toasted Oat, the provider of delicious gluten-free food products

  • SafeChain, making real estate transactions safer and simpler by leveraging the most advanced technologies, including blockchain

  • GiveGame, a fundraising platform that unlocks year-round donations and donor engagement through sports and live events

This event is made possible with support from Nationwide, Ohio Third Frontier and dozens of corporate and community partners who support Rev1’s work to foster and grow our innovation economy.
