StartupCincy Sparks the Future

Cintrifuse and partners bring back in-person networking to StartupCincy Week at Union Hall October 14-18, 2022.

by John Fox

Cintrifuse hosted the sixth StartupCincy Week October 14-18, 2022, and brought together more than 1,000 attendees and speakers from across the U.S. representing startups, investors, corporations, universities, and regional growth catalysts. Connections were made via curated networking sessions, workshops, panels, and casual conversations.

The Future Is Now
Cintrifuse’s Union Hall headquarters in Over-the-Rhine served as nerve center for the event, whose theme was “Spark the Future.”

The Alloy Green Room, a Shark Tank-like program focused on sustainable startups, awarded first place to the Cleanup Collective, an idea that originated from Cintrifuse’s and the City of Cincinnati’s Rethink Litter Hack-a-thon. The startup is working with the Cincinnati Parks Foundation to see how it can improve litter conditions in local communities.

A True Ecosystem

StartupCincy Week was a collaboration with Alloy Development, Blue North, CincyTech, ECDI, Endeavor, Flywheel Social Enterprise Hub, Product Refinery, REDI Cincinnati, and Reversed Out Creative. Many attendees stayed in town to see the creative collaboration at BLINK.

For those who didn’t attend the week’s events, and even for those who did, Cintrifuse has collected videos and presentations in an online library. That’s also home for the GreenCharge digital library of local sustainability resources and events.
