Founder Story: Oros


No one likes being cold in the winter, and Cincinnati-based Oros wants to make sure you stay warm without the bulk. The company uses aerogel, a NASA-inspired material used in spacesuits, as the base for their SolarCore technology. Used to insulate their outerwear, Oros’ thin outdoor apparel is heating up the industry. University of Miami graduates and co-founders Michael Markesbery and Rithvik Venna recently raised a $5 million seed round of funding and have received support from NCT Ventures and The Brandery, both partners of the Ohio Third Frontier.
