Akron is looking to get a Bounce. That’s actually the name of a project announced last month by Mayor Dan Horrigan.  It’s aimed at energizing business development in the Akron area.  The idea is to create an innovation hub in the city.  The mayor and the head of a D.C.-based venture fund advising the city spoke of the start-up effort.
