The Level Up Support Program provides MSV Grant Recipients with what they need to help ensure their long-term success and maximize their impact.


With over 20 years of supporting startups in the Greater Cincinnati Region, we know what works. And, a one-size-fits-all model is not it. We know the players and we know the startup game. We have relationships with local subject matter experts who play a key role in helping our grant recipients move their businesses forward. By taking advantage of our Level Up Program, each grant recipient is a deeper connected member of our MSV Community. 





Our eLearning platform has courses created by local subject matter experts with you in mind. These courses will cover all of the basics and then some!



One of the most valuable things for a small business can come from the right connection. We utilize our Community and Program Partners to match your business with the right connection to elevate your business.



We couldn’t provide such amazing content, connections, and resources without our Program Partners. Our Program Partners are companies, mentors, and volunteers within our community who donate their time and services to help you succeed.
