Developing regional innovation clusters includes building relationships among cluster members and attracting new members to the cluster.
To that end, NorTech connects and convenes public, private and academic partners in a variety of forums. Through its programs and workshops, NorTech provides a venue for the dissemination of information on technology, industry, research and development, investment, partnerships and collaborations, as well as the opportunity for dialogue that helps to create, expand and retain business opportunities.
NorTech also assists in attracting new members to the cluster by promoting Northeast Ohio’s technology story to audiences inside and outside the region. Increasing awareness of the region’s industry clusters, successes, existing assets and skilled workforce, helps to position Northeast Ohio as a formidable technology industry leader.
