Thank you for being part of the FORGE community! Our network is central to our success — and in 2023, your support enabled us to do some amazing things.
We expanded to Connecticut, launched our pilot Innovation Advisor program, and awarded 16 product development grants. We helped 242 innovative companies on their journey to manufacturing at scale, making 590 connections to regional manufacturers and suppliers and running 29 events. Ten new partners began supporting us, and we added three full-time team members.
Your belief in our model — manufacturing readiness education and right-fit connections — is what enables us to grow, and we’re grateful that we could expand so much last year. Come see what we and our network of innovative companies and supply chain members, partners, and ecosystem collaborators made happen in 2023.
If you’ve already joined us for the ride in 2024, thank you. And if you haven’t, we invite you to come along. It’s going to be an amazing year!
