Launched in June 2011, Ohio Business Profile has helped raise awareness about companies registered and doing business in Ohio that are creating interesting products, offering outstanding service, contributing to their local communities and employing Ohioans in the process. Each month, a handful of diverse businesses linked together by a common theme are featured on the Secretary of State’s website at OhioBusinessProfile.com, where Ohioans are encouraged to go to submit companies they feel are deserving of recognition in future months.
To date, Ohio Business Profile has featured more than 80 companies ranging from small sole proprietorships to Fortune 500 companies, received nearly 300 requests and recommendations for businesses to be featured, and the website launched as part of the initiative, OhioBusinessProfile.com, has been visited more than 56,000 times.
Secretary Husted’s office also releases a monthly report of new business filings in Ohio. Recent data has shown that the number of newly-registered businesses in Ohio is up for the year as compared to the same timeframe last year.
