Akron Startups Look for Bounce

Akron’s Bounce Innovation Hub just helped 15 fledgling businesses network with potential investors, customers and mentors.  The Akron organization at 526 S. Main St. hosted its first “Startup Showcase” Thursday evening in its recently renovated first-floor Generator event, meeting and work space. Local entrepreneurs made live pitches about their high-tech and low-tech businesses to about 100 audience members.

The program was intended in part to show off the range of businesses that are using the 300,000-square-foot, multistory Bounce building in the former B.F. Goodrich complex. The structure is located within the Canal Place complex but is not affiliated with Canal Place.  The business owners and other attendees also got to mix and mingle at the three-hour event.
