Outreach Promotional Solutions is a team of marketers, designers, and big thinkers based in the historic Brewery District in Columbus, Ohio.
Husband and wife duo, Nevin and Sunita Bansal, started Outreach in 2012 leaning on the family’s history running a print shop. The company began as a promotional products and logo apparel company, but expanded its services with the addition of marquee solutions Brandstores and Elevate.
President and CEO, Nevin Bansal, took a community-driven approach to running Outreach. In just a few short years, his efforts raised over $25,000 for several nonprofits and racked up hundreds of volunteer hours among his employees. This dedication to community involvement and small business philanthropy led to the creation of Small Biz Cares – a nonprofit based in Columbus meant to inspire and mobilize small businesses to give back.
