Cleveland Chain Reaction revamps investment structure for winning businesses


Organizers of Cleveland Chain Reaction, the local economic development contest that awards local small businesses with growth capital and helps them locate their operation to a particular neighborhood of focus, have announced a new funding structure for its third “season” this year, which focuses on Collinwood.
