Cluster Core Competencies
Team NEO’s Innovation Clusters Team uses its industry expertise to assist companies in new business development through innovation of new products, markets, processes and business models. Our value proposition to cluster members focuses on facilitating “Seeker – Solver” networks, in which we fill innovation gaps identified by driver industry market leaders by matching them with small/mid-size technology companies. We also assist in building out competitive regional supply chains, assemble cluster building project teams, identify and solicit federal, state, and local funding, brand and market the cluster, generate “knowledge building” events and tools, conduct technology scouting, and deliver “member customized” market research & analysis.
