What are the Benefits of a Network Membership?
TechBelt works with members to define specific goals and industry network activities that have member champions from at least two states across the TechBelt region. Champions are Network Member organizations that have committed staff and operational support to a specific issue or effort. Network-specific activities are convened around these issues and the resulting action plans are co-managed with members.
- Maintain a right of first refusal on all joint proposals and projects related to the network.
- Provide direct input on the joint work plan for each network.
- Acquire access to shared grant writing resources to support initiative and member activities.
- Share in the project revenue stream and/or project funds available to match member work and funding requests; and share in the resulting network project impacts.
Current Networks of Interest include energy, life sciences, and manufacturing innovation. Other networks will be considered based on membership interest level, multi-state regional representation and TechBelt leadership support.
