Northeast Ohio supports an array of diverse and growing industries and employment opportunities. The region is on the cutting edge of manufacturing, has become a world leader in healthcare, and is emerging as a powerhouse in the technology, service and information sectors.

Headquartered here are such well-known brands as Goodyear, Progressive, Sherwin-Williams, American Greetings and Smucker's. Financial institutions like KeyBank and multinational law firms such as Jones Day have home bases here as well. Additionally, the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals healthcare institutions attract doctors and patients from around the globe, while NASA Glenn Research Center operates the largest space simulation and spacecraft test facilities in the world, right here on the shores of Lake Erie.

With the cost of living in the Cleveland-Akron-Canton area around 15-30% lower than the national average*—and 30-60% lower than places like Boston, New York and Silicon Valley**—quality of life in Northeast Ohio just plain costs less.
