CINCINNATI – Nov. 30, 2021 – Purpose Jobs, the Midwest’s largest startup and tech community, announced today Coterie Insurance to its list of Midwest Startups and Tech Companies to Watch in 2022. Companies were evaluated based on recent funding, significant employee growth, impactful product launches, office expansions, recent IPOs and upcoming exits. The list covered companies headquartered and hiring in the following cities: Ann Arbor, Chicago, Columbus, Cincinnati, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Pittsburgh.
Cincinnati continues to be one of the top growing tech ecosystems around the country with some of the best startups to watch. A combination of university talent pipelines, top-rated quality of life, growing startup ecosystem, and growing VC funding has Tree Town topping lists as one of the best places to start a tech company. Coterie Insurance is out on a mission to transform business insurance. The company is 100 percent remote but maintains an office in Cincinnati. Coterie Insurance recently closed their Series B funding round which raised $50 million. Coterie Insurance continues to create solutions to further simplify small commercial insurance for agents, brokers, partners and small businesses.
From major funding rounds to explosive IPOs, new funds to new HQs, the Midwest experienced significant growth for its emerging tech hubs in Detroit, Columbus, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and more. Out of the best 15 U.S. cities for making a real impact at a high-growth company, LinkedIn lists the top 9 as being in the Midwest. Over the last year Columbus, OH boasted the largest IPO in Ohio’s history with insurtech company Root raising nearly $725 million; Ann Arbor netted more than $215 million from venture capital firms across 43 startup companies; and Pittsburgh was just named to Startup Genome’s 2021 Global Startup Ecosystem Report as #23 on a global list of emerging startup ecosystems to watch.
“It’s an honor to be a part of this new class of Midwest startups. When so many of us wanted to get into tech, lists like this helped give us something to aspire to be a part of and now that we’re here it’s really special,” said Rafael Roa, VP of People at Coterie Insurance. “Even more so, that we’ve grown to where we are by striking that balance between a commitment to a 100% national remote workforce and strong Cincinnati-area roots, as we’re proud to call Blue Ash home.”
