The two-man founding team behind Columbus-based startup UberData Networks came to the area with different backgrounds. They both had backgrounds in IT consulting and network engineering. While launching their company in 2013, they drew inspiration from their personal and professional experiences. Jon White is a veteran of the technology industry, and Jeff Van Horne brings 15 years of experience to the table from Tellabs. He was instrumental in launching the company’s POL product line.
The founders of UberData Networks have diverse backgrounds. Jeff Van Horne and Jon White are former executives of Tellabs, which has a long history of working with Columbus businesses. While both have entrepreneurial backgrounds, they have a common goal: providing a more efficient and flexible way to connect multiple buildings. Using technology to increase business productivity is the cornerstone of their approach. They want their clients to benefit from their expertise and help them to grow and succeed.
Founded in 2013, UberData Networks focuses on developing fiber-optic networks for small businesses and enterprises. These systems provide high-speed connectivity and are more flexible and customizable than traditional Ethernet switches.

Combined, their backgrounds make them a great team to work with. At the time of launch, they already had clients in 12 states.
While the company is growing and expanding, its founders have a unique background. They worked together as executives at Tellabs and have a background in IT consulting. Both are experts in their respective fields. They have decades of experience working with Columbus-based businesses and are committed to establishing a strong partnership with them. These entrepreneurs share a common goal: building a better Columbus and greater Ohio. This is the perfect time to invest in your Columbus company.
While many companies will benefit from the thriving workforce in Columbus, many of the city’s higher education institutions are doing a good job of preparing future employees. By offering students the skills and experience necessary to build a successful business, a world-class university is a great asset for the local workforce. In addition to attracting top talent, it also attracts companies to the city. And the quality of its people is another key advantage.
