The Greater Cincinnati
Business opportunities don’t just happen. They’re created. The Greater Cincinnati Business Showcase is all about creating opportunities for local businesses — especially small businesses — to succeed.
The Greater Cincinnati Business Showcase is a weekly multimedia program dedicated to the region’s commerce. Each week, the GCBS gives local businesses of all kinds and sizes a chance to show off their wares and services through a unique blend of traditional television, online video, and social media.
Besides airing on local broadcast television, the showcase will be available on-demand through the AOTV channel on Roku and YouTube. Individual segments also will be posted online.
America’s small and medium-sized businesses are a vital part of the U.S. economy, and their success is essential to our economic growth and prosperity. We believe local communities should go above and beyond to support local businesses and entrepreneurs. That’s why the Greater Cincinnati Business Showcase exists.
Small businesses are economic engines, consistently responsible for creating three-quarters of the country’s new jobs, and they pay more than 44 percent of the country’s private payroll. They also are often more nimble and more creative than their larger competitors, quickly introducing innovative products and ideas into the market.

The Greater Cincinnati Business Showcase offers small businesses the kind of exposure that’s normally out of their budgets.
