We asked Columbus visionaries how we can build on what we have to keep the momentum going-and maybe even jump-start it. What resulted is nothing short of inspirational.

Columbus is a smart city. It's full of innovators and entrepreneurs, business execs and academics. It's also a changing city. As we continue to grow and evolve, we're constantly looking to the future. So we asked our city's visionaries how we can build on what we have to keep that momentum going-and maybe even jump-start it. What resulted is nothing short of inspirational. We hope their ideas (and a few of our own) will excite you as much as they did us. After all, people and ideas like these are what make our city exceptional.
