Whether you’re a high-tech start-up working on the ”next big thing,” or an established company looking to spark a new phase of growth and profit, you’ll go through predictable stages as you progress:


Evaluate a new idea, discovery, product or technology—it could come from an innovator or entrepreneur, a scientist in the lab, an engineer or researcher, or from an established manufacturer. Explore its potential and plan its development. The road to commercialization starts here.


Nurture and develop your innovation and launch it into a real business enterprise through expert mentoring. Attract investors and financing. Establish a foothold in the marketplace.


Expand and grow your manufacturing business or product line as you address challenges in sales, efficiency, productivity and quality. Refine your capabilities, practices and procedures. Explore new ways to innovate products. Connect to new resources locally and nationwide.
