Open Innovation Ohio Forums are open to middle market companies ($10 million - $1 billion in revenue) in Ohio.
What Is Open Innovation? Open innovation occurs when companies look to communities of experts, thinkers and leaders for new ideas, technologies and solutions that help solve their most challenging problems.
Learn how companies in Ohio and across the nation have used open innovation to overcome technical challenges and launch breakthrough new products and services.
Hear from renowned speakers and innovation visionaries about how your company can capitalize on the open innovation movement.
Understand how your company can access Open Innovation Incentives from the State of Ohio Network with professionals from leading companies across Ohio.
Open Innovation Ohio Forums are sponsored by Ohio Third Frontier to help educate businesses about open innovation as well as spread the word about a new incentive program.
Third Frontier is offering a new incentive for middle market businesses across Ohio that will allow them to facilitate an open innovation process to overcome specific technical obstacles. Using open innovation allows companies to develop a next-generation or new product, service, or process, while also accelerating the time to market and creating a positive economic benefit for Ohio.
Facilitating Open Innovation Through Intermediaries
Ohio Third Frontier is working with two intermediaries, NineSigma and yet2, to help middle market companies facilitate the open innovation process at a significantly lower rate, with 50% of costs subsidized by the State of Ohio’s Open Innovation Incentive.
Who is eligible for the incentive?
To be eligible for the incentive program, your company must be:
A for-profit company
Registered with the Ohio Secretary of State with a principal place of business in Ohio
A middle market company with revenues between $10 million and $1 billion
Please attend a forum to learn more about the Open Innovation Incentives.
