About Joe Juratovac
Joe is a seasoned innovation builder and facilitator that
has served in many capacities in the Columbus innovation and
startup community. Having evolved from industrial designer
to project management in product development at Battelle,
Joe had a hand in designing everything from surgical tools
to chain saws! Built a team to develop and scale technology
for a Marysville based startup, and most recently worked for
a Central Ohio-based seed-stage investment fund, scouting,
guiding and investing in promising new technologies in a
number of industries. Joe applies his user and market
focused viewpoint, taming technology to solve real problems,
to nurture and grow new businesses.
Joe is a “3C” guy: raised in the Cleveland area, educated in Cincinnati (go Bearcats!), and settled in Columbus, with two grown children, a designer/artist wife and a fluffy dog. Hobbies include welding/metalwork, over-40 ice hockey, home remodeling and trying to stay optimistic about the Columbus Blue Jackets.
