A Cleveland venture capital group plans to fund over 200 startups in Ohio through a new state-wide initiative. 

Flashstarts is working with the Third Frontier program to distribute over $100 million over the next three years. It’s called the Cleveland200 fund. Flashstarts CEO Charles Stack says at least $5 million of the fund will advance job growth in Northeast Ohio by supporting startups.
