This summer, product-focused technology start-up companies in Northeast Ohio will have the opportunity to raise and receive funds toward bringing their ideas to reality in a new pitch competition presented by the Incubator at MAGNET (The Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network).  The competition is called “ProtoTech.”

Beginning in late July, the Incubator at MAGNET will start accepting applications from start-up companies whose technology is based on developing a new product or process.  Six applicants will then be selected to develop their product pitch and be provided with resources such as an online team page and social media tools to raise funds for their product.

Interested start-ups can also contact Dave Crain directly at 216-432-5310 or visit the website here.


The Incubator at MAGNET has created a new service---an onsite, product-focused Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) and named Tom Lix, founder and Chairman of Cleveland Whiskey, to serve as its first EIR. The EIR is a seasoned, “been there, done that” coach and mentor for current Incubator tenants and will also serve a resource for prospective entrepreneurs throughout Northeast Ohio.
