Cintrifuse Startup Ecosystem



As Cincinnati continues to grow and establish itself as the premiere startup hub of the Midwest, Cintrifuse has flourished at the heart of it all—connecting tech startups to a vast network of resources throughout its impressive ecosystem. Canned Spinach was approached to handle a complete overhaul of the Cintrifuse website, but also worked as a key strategic partner to communicate an elevated brand strategy that championed a user-first mindset. Cintrifuse is bolstered by various powerful sub-brands and Cincinnati staples, such as Union Hall, FinTech Frontier, StartupCincy, and more, all of which we worked to highlight and incorporate into one cohesive, accessible, and scalable strategy.

A Brand Reimagined

Cintrifuse is a powerhouse of distinct subbrands, each with its own focus and unique user types. Our primary strategic focus centered on how we could properly communicate the nuanced relationships between these various network partners and companies while also prominently showcasing Cintrifuse’s role throughout. Our ultimate brand strategy leverages Cintrifuse as the central connection hub for these diverse startup resources and mentorship programs. These are supported through the extensive ecosystem of partners, funds, and more.


We have been incredibly pleased with our results from working with Canned Spinach. They bring superior design and development skills, excellent customer service, quick turnaround times, and affordable rates. Their team is organized, approachable, and kind. They are upfront and transparent with the scope, timeline, and process of each project. They have been a joy to work with and I look forward to continuing our relationship together.
