The Cleveland region offers everything needed to set up growing companies for optimal success.

Location is everything

At the heartland of the nation’s industrial corridor

Our revitalized east and west campuses are centrally located at the crossroads of several major transportation corridors, including prominent interstates, and railways — and in the case of FIC West, Hopkins International Airport and a cargo port on Lake Erie.
