Greater Cincinnati is a place where anyone can be heard

In 1837, William Procter and James Gamble met under decidedly non-businesslike circumstances: They married sisters. Their friendship would ultimately yield a global powerhouse corporation, with enough momentum to grow a city.

Modern Cincinnatians are descendants of that pioneering spirit — and our region is often listed among the nation’s friendliest. It’s still a place where big connections tend to start organically. Newcomers are impressed by leaders’ accessibility, enthusiasm and willingness to listen to great ideas.

We like to say you’re only one cup of coffee away from making change. We don’t make you wait until you’re older or until you’ve lived in our region for a while — if you want to change the community, we will dig in and help you do it.
