Cincinnati a finalist for GeekWire’s temporary HQ

December 10, 2017 by  

Cincinnati seems to be having a run of good luck at the moment. Not only is it a finalist for the expansion team of Major League Soccer, it has also reached the last stage for the temporary headquarters of GeekWire, according to an article on Cincinnati.com.

GeekWire is a news website that covers innovation, science, and technology. The company, which is based in Seattle, is looking for a second headquarters, though it will be a temporary one. There are three other cities under consideration: Pittsburgh, Raleigh, and Denver.

GeekWire announced that its purpose in setting up a second headquarters is to embed staff members in the city during the month of February. They will study and report on the local technology in order to assess whether or not the city under study could become the ‘next great North American tech city’. Readers will be able to vote for the winning city on GeekWire’s website.

Cintrifuse, an important presence in the start-ups in Cincinnati, made the proposal to GeekWire. Eric Weissmann of Cintrifuse said he was not surprised to hear GeekWire was considering Cincinnati, considering what the city has to offer, such as a number of Fortune 500 companies, a growing start-up community, and a knack for leading the news.

Developments like this are interesting to many people, and officials can help by working with a newsletter printing company to keep them updated.
