Alex Margulis, Chief Operating Officer-Introduction to Mansfield Bio-Incubator (5 minutes)

Mike Thompson – Introduction to MassMEP (10-15 minutes)

  • MassMEP creates economic impact by transforming manufacturing enterprises and the manufacturing ecosystem. This is achieved through operational excellence, workforce development and innovative growth strategies, enhanced through strategic public/private partnerships. We believe there is some element to a manufacturer’s business – whether it’s finding inefficiencies, strengthening internal processes or unlocking growth – that can extend the firm beyond its current limitations.

Tom Andrellos – Growth Services (10-15 minutes)

  • All manufacturers have at least one element that sets them apart and can enable them to achieve success. If you haven’t yet uncovered that unique differentiator, MassMEP can help you. And if you have already discovered that element, we can work with you to turn your vision into a reality.
  • Design for Manufacturing
  • Consortiums
  • Funding opportunities

Rich Sullivan – Manufacturing USA, M2I2 capital grant program (10-15 minutes)

  • Manufacturing USA institutes focus on accelerating innovation in key technology areas through collaboration among academia and manufacturing companies, ushering in next generation supply chains in America.
  • Massachusetts has made a substantial commitment to develop the Manufacturing USA infrastructure within the state’s academic, research and manufacturing industry. M2I2 will advance innovation and job growth within the state through cross-collaboration among companies, universities, national labs, government, incubators, accelerators and other academic and training institutions.
