GCVA is a channel to rally the Cincinnati tech community through promotional and educational startup-oriented programming.  


We believe Cincinnati has the resources to be the premier startup destination in the Midwest. Everything GCVA does fosters this sense of community. Our leadership consists of young, entrepreneurial volunteers involved with several of Cincinnati’s startup organizations giving us a pulse of the region’s strengths and needs. Our brand takes pride in being “socially unassuming” – meaning everyone is welcome! Looking to dip your toes in #StartupCincy? Check out our morning events, Breakfast Club and Joe Thirty. Student coder looking to hack? Come to our “CTO Day” events. Angel looking for investment opportunities? Well, come to everything! See below for more details.
