TAKE THE CHALLENGE
Rhode Island Manufacturers: Do you provide products for the defense industry and wish to diversify your offerings? Are you ready to push your company forward? Do you have what it takes to innovate? Take the Challenge!
The Manufacturing Innovation Challenge is a competitive business development opportunity for RI manufacturers, supplying the defense industry, to access expertise, hands-on design and product development talent, and the opportunity to apply for funding to implement recommendations.
The Manufacturing Innovation Challenge consists of three phases that take a company through the process to assess, implement and catalyze.
ABOUT THE ASSESSMENT
The assessment program is both an opportunity to focus on strategy for your organization, and to identify actionable items to benefit your company. The assessments are confidential, for your benefit, and the gateway to opportunities to apply for additional resources. Awarded manufacturers will meet with a multidisciplinary team of experts who will take a fresh-eyes look at the operation—making recommendations around areas of risk and opportunity.
