Cuyahoga County is enjoying a resurgence in national attention for its central location, strong higher education system, diverse economic and employer ecosystem, healthcare capital, and nationally-recognized arts and cultural institutions. This attention resulted in the region being selected as the host for the 2016 Republican National Convention and ranking as a top ten region for millennials.

Cuyahoga County is home to 1.2 million people and is comprised of 59 unique and distinctive communities with Cleveland as its nucleus. Cleveland is booming right now thanks to the “fifth migration,” tied for eighth in the country (along with Miami and Seattle) for the increase in the number of college-educated millennial residents.

The County is leading in facilitating and accelerating innovation development in order to create an environment conducive to invention and innovation.
