"LightHouse exemplifies the very best of our great state...as high school entrepreneurs, each of you contributes to our state's brain gain and proves that Ohioans are ready to out-innovate the rest of the world." -US Senator Sherrod Brown
LightHouse Ohio is an entrepreneurial incubator and accelerator for Northeastern Ohio high school students. We offer students access to workspace, mentors, investors, and a community of entrepreneurs all in order to help them grow and be successful. LightHouse Ohio is partnered with Cleveland-based seed-stage investment firm Shaker LaunchHouse (www.launchhouse.com), which enables us to provide the same level of support to our high schoolers as they do to the young adult community. We were founded in 2012 by three students--Zach Schwartz, Samir Amrania, and Vibhu Krishna--who wanted to reach a demographic that often doesn't get the support and recognition it deserves.
