For the uninitiated, TheMetropreneur.com is a spin off site from Columbus Underground that focuses on small business development and entrepreneurship. Over the past two years it has quickly become a valuable news resource for anyone interested in starting or growing a local business.

It’s also a great resource for anyone who wants to keep up with the latest trends within the local creative/entrepreneurial community and get a behind-the-scene look at what goes on within local businesses.

So to better keep the CU audience informed, we’re going to be sharing a quick digest of the past week’s worth of updates from Metropreneur every Monday morning. Here’s what we’ve got on deck this week:

  • The City of Grandview Heights has been working on plans for the past eight years to bring new businesses inside their city limits.
  • The Columbus Chamber offers assistance to minority and women owned businesses through their Diversity Bridge program.
  • Increase CDC is hosting their 2012 Entrepreneurs Conference & Expo on October 11th at the Embassy Suites Airport Hotel.
  • Six local wine retailers have launched the Columbus Wine Collective to help cooperatively market their businesses, host events and educate local consumers on the value of shopping locally for wine.
  • Local business owners and community leaders share with us their thoughts on the value of on street parking, which is being planned for High Street through Downtown Columbus.
  • The Columbus Creative Co-Op are launching a book to celebrate 200Columbus, which includes works from 38 local authors and artists.
  • Local business accelerator Founders Factory just invested $25,000 on startups born out of the OSU-led 10X Accelerator program.
