Northeast Ohio has long been known for making things, and we are second to none when it comes to making things better, more efficiently, and more cost effectively. As Greater Cleveland looks ahead, the manufacturing focus needs to be on transforming the industry into a global leader. By adopting the latest innovations, and seizing upon the technology of tomorrow, Cleveland's manufacturing industry stands to remain as powerful a force as it has been for decades.

Healthcare Tech

bioenterprise, austen bioinnovation work as one to propel healthcare tech in region

Let's imagine that the Northeast Ohio healthcare innovation community is a football team. That would make business recruiter BioEnterprise the quarterback, "handing off" startup companies to Austen BioInnovation Institute in Akron, with an aim of scoring funding and resources a company needs to succeed.    Strained metaphors aside, BioEnterprise and Austen are two local groups working as a team to push a regional economic transition from staid manufacturing to the more vibrant realm of healthcare and innovation technology. What exactly do these groups do and how do they do it? How do they work together to achieve their goals? Key members from each organization share their connected strategies.   Providing a guiding hand   BioEnterprise is a Cleveland nonprofit tasked with growing healthcare companies and commercializing bioscience technologies. The early-stage firms BioEnterprise assists are seeking to produce medical devices and biotechnology, or developing drugs for commercial use.   The economic development group was founded in 2002 by the Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University as a way to harness area strengths in medical devices and healthcare technology.
