Manufacturing Innovation Fund

 

About the Fund

The Manufacturing Innovation Fund supports a set of activities designed to spur technology development and commercialization across New York State, including Manufacturing Innovation Grants.  The Fund is named for Jeff Lawrence, a champion of the New York manufacturing and entrepreneurial communities who passed away in 2015. During his more than 20 years at the Center for Economic Growth, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership affiliate in the Capital Region where he served as executive vice president, Jeff directed programs of direct assistance to manufacturers and technology companies to increase their competitiveness. He is remembered for being an invaluable and generous mentor to many in the area’s business community and a tireless advocate for manufacturing innovation throughout New York.
