SME Focused Industrial Consortia

IN-MaC has provided seed funding to launch several topic based industrial consortia focused on meeting the needs of Indiana’s SMEs. While SMEs are the primary focus of the consortia, they are open to companies of all sizes, in particular those with a need to encourage their supply chain to adopt new technologies. Governance input to IN-MaC is also available at higher membership levels. The current group of Developing Consortia is listed below. Please contact Michael Ursem 765-494-4437 for more information.
