FASTLANE wants to give money away!
FASTLANE is a great resource for any local startup (or business) that needs manufacturing support in our community. In fact, when the Dayton Tech Guide team hears of a startup that may need prototyping or manufacturing support it is FASTLANE that we will recommend as their first step.
One reason (besides their awesome team) is their availability of programming that can support manufacturers of varying sizes. They are the Dayton Region’s Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership affiliate location, a federal and state program, with the goal of helping small & medium manufacturers become more innovative and as such, often have funding to support local companies.
Currently, the FASTLANE team has three programs with funding still available:
1) Funding is Available for Additive Manufacturing
But, time is running out! Hurry to apply for the FASTLANE 3D Printing – Additive Manufacturing Program. Have questions about how this rapidly growing innovative technology could help your manufacturing business? Ask their team how other manufacturers are using additive in their business or click here to learn more.
2) Funding is Available for Cyber Security
Many small companies are getting hacked, customer records are accessed, trade secrets are stolen and the State of Ohio wants to help you to protect your business. It has gotten to the point that the Department of Defense will no longer do business with companies who are not taking the measures to ensure they are compliant with NIST 800-171. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your firewall is enough. Ask their team how you can protect your business or click Cyber Security Compliance Program to learn more.
3) Funding is Available for AS9100 Related Services
This funding opportunity includes expenses for training, gap analysis, consulting, audits, certifications, etc. Ask their team how you can get funding to help with your AS9100 certification.
