What is The Ohio Capital Fund?
The Ohio Capital Fund, a fund of funds, was established by the State of Ohio to help increase private investment in Ohio companies in the seed or early stage of business development. To date, the Ohio Capital Fund has obtained $150 million of commitments from private resources for investment in qualified venture capital funds. These venture capital funds commit to invest at least half of the Ohio Capital Fund monies in Ohio-based companies, corporations and individuals. The Ohio Capital Fund is actively making commitments to venture capital funds and through these commitments, the Ohio Capital Fund acts as a catalyst to promote venture capital investment in promising Ohio companies.
