When 'Collaboration' Is More Than a Buzzword

In the case of the Columbus Partnership, the word "collaboration" - which often doesn't have much meat behind it in the private sector - is at the core of the civic organization's success. The organization brings together seven Columbus tech companies (all of which are in different economic sectors and therefore don't compete with each other) together to fuel innovation and idea generation. The companies promote business growth and development in the Columbus area, taking advantage of the close-knit community that is fostered by Columbus' relatively modest population size.
