What the MassMEP Center is Reading
By Kathie Mahoney, Marketing & Administration Director, MassMEP
The latest book on manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing: The New American Innovation Policies, by William B. Bonvillian and Peter L. Singer, highlights MassMEP and its partner Greentown Labs as a success for the work they do to help start-up manufacturing companies.
"Most technology-based, innovative start-ups now come from university research benches through researchers, postdocs, and grad students. These start-ups know their research but not manufacturing. The Greentown Labs-MassMEP partnership between start-ups and small manufacturers has attempted to get the start-ups past this innovation gap; it offers an additional feature to the 'innovation orchards' approach."
