OBDC Planroom

As we witness a historic construction boom in Central Ohio, the Ohio Business Development Center (OBDC), under the visionary leadership of Ronda Watson Barber, is at the forefront of connecting contractors and material suppliers with unparalleled opportunities. Our dedication to empowering minority businesses is more critical than ever, as we bridge the gap between talented entrepreneurs and the thriving construction industry.
