Eric Wagner, Senior Collaboration Officer at the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence, will discuss how small and medium sized manufacturing companies can apply for and utilize federal and state funding programs. These programs target small and medium companies which have the potential for growth in Ohio.
Learn about programs such as the Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) and other programs administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) as well as the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Voucher program administered by the federal government. Eric will inform participants on the available programs and highlight some successes CDME has had with them for our small business clients. In certain cases, CDME will assist with the identification, development, capture and execution of funding from these programs for the growth of our clients.
This lunch and learn event is targeted towards Ohio-based, small and medium-sized companies engaged in manufacturing.
