    Episode 59: Betsy Pandora, Short North Alliance: Leading a community with innovation

    The Short North is known for its vibrant, creative and inclusive community as a leading arts destination. It also happens to be the densest commercial corridor in the City of Columbus, and with Columbus slated to add 1 million additional residents to the city by 2050, there is a lot for an organization like the Short North Alliance to consider.



    "As Executive Director of the Short North Alliance, my role is constant in creative problem solving," says Betsy Pandora.



    A Columbus native and a graduate of the Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture, Betsy is a dedicated advocate for our local community, a trait that is evident throughout her conversation with cbuzz host Mikaela Hunt.

    Episode 57: CEO Insights featuring Greg Ubert, Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea

    For this month’s episode, cbuzz is revisiting a CEO Insights conversation with Greg Ubert, founder and president of Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea. 



    Greg Ubert explored a path not traveled by many when he left his job in high-tech software to pursue a coffee venture.



    The Harvard graduate felt pressed to share with others the realization he had only just come to himself – coffee didn’t just have to be for caffeine, it could also taste great. This began Ubert’s quest for the perfect cup that resulted in the 1991 founding of Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea right here in Columbus.
