2016 Tech Company of the Year (Large), Hyland Software

They are growing and they keep on winning. It’s hard to imagine that this organization with its growth over the past five years continues to win awards, but they do because they keep the same small feel that their employees and customers love. It’s been a great model for them and I was happy to get to hear more about what keeps driving them to be the best.

  • 2018 COSE Day at the Capitol

    On March 13, COSE/GCP members and staff participated in another successful edition of COSE Day at the Capitol in Columbus, a signature GCP advocacy annual event. The day’s agenda provided entrepreneurs and the region’s small business community an exclusive opportunity to connect with elected leaders and key decision-makers on the issues—ranging from cybersecurity to crowdfunding to workforce development—that are of primary importance to so many of our members. 

    The timing of this year’s event allowed our membership to share their experiences and meet directly with fourteen members of the legislature and their policy advisors. Each moment allowed attendees to influence the legislature’s deliberations on key public policy issues that directly impact small businesses ability to succeed. 

    Featured speakers at COSE Day at the Capitol included:

    • Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives Cliff Rosenberger
    • Representative Ryan Smith
    • Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko
    • Senator Bob Hackett
    • Senator Sandra Williams
    • Asim Haque - Chair, Public Utilities Commission of Ohio

    Senator Bob Hackett was recognized with a Small Business Advocate of the Year Award for introducing legislation last year that incentivizes data protection and provides a safe harbor to businesses that implement a specified cybersecurity program.  COSE/GCP small businesses also presented an award to Representative Ryan Smith for the pivotal role he played in ensuring proposed modifications to Ohio’s tax structure were averted in 2017 that would have shifted the state tax burden to other businesses.

  • 24 Million Reasons to Attend the Cleveland B2B Matchmaker

    Because of Cleveland’s B2B Matchmaker, Northeast Ohio’s V2 Technology along with an extended team secured a $24-million NASA contract. Read on below to learn how they did it and how your business could be this year’s big B2B winner.

    Are you looking for a reason to attend the 13th annual Cleveland B2B Matchmaker Event taking place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 14 at the Terrace Club inside Progressive Field? You need look no further than Northeast Ohio-based V2 Technology for 24 million good reasons why your company needs to be a part of this unique event.

    As a result of connections and a relationship that formed at Cleveland’s B2B Matchmaker Events, V2 is part of the winning team that landed a five-year, $24-million contract to provide technical support services to the NASA Safety Center (NSC) located at the Glenn Research Center (GRC). Through the contract, which came about as a direct result of V2’s participation in the B2B Matchmaker, V2 will support the NSC and Banner Quality Management, Inc., by providing support for training and development; information dissemination and knowledge sharing; operational support of information technology systems; mishap investigation; data mining analysis and trending; and project management. 

    V2 and the extended team were chosen for the NSC contract based both on their company’s IT strengths and capabilities as well as its previous experience working with NASA, which dates back to V2 and NASA officials first meeting during the 2010 B2B Matchmaker. Additionally, V2 is a part of the winning team currently performing the 5 year $110 Million PACE IV contract with Nasa Glenn Research Center in Cleveland Ohio. 

    “V2 is very pleased to be supporting NASA, one of the premiere and historic scientific research agencies in the world,” according to V2 Founder and CEO Patrick Golembiewski. “Working to support the scientific and strategic missions of this agency is a source of pride for all our employees.”

    Golembiewski added: “The B2B Matchmaker has been an integral part of V2’s success. The ability for a small business to have targeted, direct access to major companies that are looking to buy is invaluable. This is a must-attend event for small businesses.

    2018 B2B Matchmaker details

    Presented by COSE and the Greater Cleveland Partnership, the 13th annual Cleveland B2B Matchmaker Event is a unique small business contracting event that presents a tremendous opportunity for small businesses to gain access to buyers representing millions of dollars in purchasing. The event’s goal is to create future contract opportunities for your small business through one-on-one sessions between buyers and sellers.
