What we're about

Recognizing that the most successful people didn’t get their success on their own. Even Solopreneurs find insights when chatting about their ideas to others. Handing out business cards is easy, but building the kinds of relationships that will support our aspirations as Entrepreneurs and Small Business Leaders takes more.

Enter BLOC-O: Business Leaders of Central Ohio. Whether we are a company of 1, 10, 100, or more, we’re leaders of small businesses in Central Ohio. We’re stronger together, and we can leverage one another’s experiences to create more, expect more, and succeed more.
