Solon is also proud that we’ve been recognized as Ohio’s digital capital in the 2013 Google eCapital Awards. “Science Olympiad-winning students have made Solon a tech star, and the Cleveland suburb also leads Ohio’s digital way,” according to Google. “Its online business community connects local shops and restaurants with residents and visitors.”
We are an active organization that provides opportunities to build business relationships through programs and events that target the various sectors we serve. In addition to providing programs, we serve as advocates for our business community and provide cost-saving benefits, making the Solon Chamber the perfect partner to help your business thrive.
