Sponsorship Opportunities

 

Sponsorship of GC3 directly supports work force development and retention in our region by making greater Cincinnati a destination for top students, employees, and companies.

GC3 represents the region’s economic engine, employing Greater Cincinnati’s largest workforce (more than 18,000), pumping billions of dollars into the regional economy and graduating unmatched knowledge and talent into the private and public sectors to spur continued growth.  From helping attract companies to sustaining our region-wide workforce, higher education is the region’s single most important business asset.

GC3 supports its higher education members by providing exceptional development opportunities to the faculty and staff at our 18 member colleges and universities.  GC3 supports the retention and attraction of talent in the greater Cincinnati region through its Internship Initiative.  This initiative, a joint venture between all the member colleges, spurred the creation of an Internship Toolkit.  The Toolkit offers a step-by-step roadmap for business to use in creating good internship programs.  Additionally, the Intern Navigator database helps drive business to the right intern for the position. Additionally, the Foundations of Internship Development workshop series supports these tools with robust information on the creation of internship as connecting companies to a cohort of other companies creating internships and to a mentor companies with established programs.

Not every entity is in the position to provide financial support for an organization or an effort.  However, you still have the opportunity to support GC3's Internship Initiative helping a company or organization as they develop and begin to manage an internship or program of their own.  We are always looking for experts to help grow the region and retain the talent.  We welcome your participation and expertise.  This opportunity does not cost you anything but your time.
