Is this the #glass ceiling the ladies all want to break through? If so, is it to stop dudes from looking up their skirts? @brandery #cincinnati #OTR #italianate #igersohio (Taken with instagram)

Cincinnati Growing Cincinnati” via The Queen City Project:

On May 17th and 18th Cincinnati played host to the CEOs for Cities 2012 National Meeting. The theme of this distinguished conference was “The City as a Startup” and to help illustrate that concept SpringBoard, ArtWorks and ArtPlace reached out to the QCP to produce a short film that highlighted the entrepreneurial awesomeness that is taking place in our fair city.

Beyond simply spotlighting a few local, independent success stories we wanted to give due credit to the organizations that help perpetuate this independent start-up spirit. Organizations like SpringBoardLosantivilleand the Brandery that provide entrepreneurs with the resources and support to help them achieve lift-off.

The businesses we decided to feature in the video each operate under the umbrella of one of those incubators. They are all doing amazing work across a broad range of mediums, from guerrilla gardening to mobile app development, and we encourage you to check each and every one out:

Findlay Market
Able Projects
Mamluft and Co.
Such & Such

A lot of wonderful and creative Cincinnatians came together to make this film happen, and as a result of that, we think this might be our best feature yet, but we’ll let the work speak for itself.
