The team at InnovatePGH, in partnership with Riverside Center for Innovation and the University of Pittsburgh Small Business Development Center, is happy to announce the launch of the Training and Market Access for Entrepreneurs (TMACE) Program. This program connects companies in the robotics, automation, and AI industries with diverse local suppliers from Southwestern Pennsylvania via the TMACE Supplier Directory. TMACE identifies small businesses throughout the region, especially those who are Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), woman, veteran and/or rural-owned, with the capacity to expand into these industries and adds them to the TMACE Supplier Directory. This directory is then shared with companies in the target industries who are seeking suppliers. TMACE also assists entrepreneurs in adapting their product and service offerings to fill gaps in the local robotics supply chain. In this way, TMACE not only provides critical connections for local businesses, but also helps solve inefficiencies in the robotics, automation, and AI industries.
They are hoping you will join them in sharing this news with your network and have provided some talking points as well as flyers. They appreciate your consideration for collaborating with them to announce the launch of Training and Market Access for Entrepreneurs!
