The TechBelt Initiative is a network of technology and innovation stakeholders collaborating to accelerate economic growth within the Northeast Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia region. Its members are broad-based, representing the region’s economic development organizations, foundations, researchers, and chambers of commerce.
TechBelt provides a platform to collectively identify, and rapidly launch, collaborative opportunities and partnerships that will establish the region as a global center for public and private investment, research, innovation, and manufacturing. The Initiative maintains a flexible foundation for collaboration that identifies proactive opportunities in targeted industry sectors, but which can also rapidly respond to opportunities as they arise. The TechBelt looks for opportunities that involve more than a single organization and more than a single state.
TechBelt’s role is convening, planning, and coordinating with the Initiative’s members to assess new opportunities and prioritize new initiatives for economic growth.
