We partner with funders committed to shaping tomorrow's manufacturing economy.

We partner with funders committed to shaping tomorrow's manufacturing economy.


MAGNET believes a healthy manufacturing base will help create more prosperity in Northeast Ohio — and we’re not the only ones! Our funding sources are varied, coming from earned revenue fees for work with manufacturers, government grants, federal and state MEP funding, Ohio Third Frontier and philanthropic support.

As a nonprofit organization, this vital support ensures that our services can be accessed by the thousands of small- and medium-sized manufacturers in Northeast Ohio that need high-quality consulting at affordable rates.

Addressing fundamental market gaps — access to Industry 4.0 technologies, innovation and startup services, process and marketing support, growth advising and workforce development — is possible because of these legislatively supported initiatives.

MAGNET offers its deepest gratitude to all who share their energy, resources and financial support to help MAGNET create a thriving Northeast Ohio manufacturing sector. Together, we are positively impacting our communities!
