Investors and Sponsors


We are once again grateful to have strong partnerships with companies invested in nurturing the next generation of successful entrepreneurs. Chain Reaction applicants will compete in a pitch competition with the pool of available funds being sourced from the business and civic communities in Greater Cleveland.

Our slogan is “Cleveland’s Own Helping Cleveland’s Own.” And we would love to have you be a part of our program and play a key role in helping small business across our region not just survive but to thrive well into the future. Position your brand among other organizations focused on building our community and building a Greater Cleveland for all!

We have been fortunate to have an amazing lineup of investors and sponsors since our inception in 2017. Cleveland Chain Reaction thanks these supporters for their past involvement with this neighborhood economic development project. We look forward to continued participation from them and others moving forward!

If you are interested in getting engaged, please contact Megan Kim at mkim@greatercle.com.
