Dublin, Marysville ‘Beta District’ could become Ohio’s version of Silicon Valley

By Bruce Edwards

DUBLIN, Ohio (WCMH) — Silicon Valley might be the tech-hub of the nation, but the next wave of innovation in the country could happen right here in Central Ohio.

“When we think, ‘Why here?’ versus, ‘Why?’ some of the other economies, some of the other cities, it’s really the ecosystem that we promote,” explains Jake Kaufman from Adept Marketing.

Dublin and Marysville are connected by a 35-mile stretch of highway. But the US-33 corridor is more than a link between two cities — it connects a shared vision of the future.
