The Columbus Chamber is working hard to ensure your business has access to the resources it needs to succeed during this critical time of need. Elevate Cbus is still accepting nominations for its second cohort and will make necessary adjustments to programming to adhere to the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Taylor Exner at

Cohort two kick-off will be held on August 13, 2020 and is designed to have accepted participants and their supervisor come together to learn more about the program.
