All Eyes On Clean Tech Prize

Following the money trail. Connecting the dots. Where Youngstown is heading:

The money is part of $16 million secured by U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-17th, for what he termed “cutting edge” research in the defense-appropriations spending bill just passed by the House. Ryan is a member of the House Appropriations Committee. ...

... Ryan said the funding will help make the region “a world leader in advanced manufacturing and developing products that keep our soldiers safe in the field.”

The projects funded in the bill have the potential to spin off civilian applications, energy generation and green-collar jobs, he said.

One of the benefits of moving your business to Youngstown, as Revere Data did, is gaining access to the considerable resources beginning to pool in the Mahoning Valley. It's another reason why Youngstown is a top-10 place to start a business. Few regions are in a position to take advantage of the shifting economic landscape. Few places are so welcoming to new ideas.

Now is the time to get in on the ground floor. Join Greater Youngstown 2.0.
