Tech Institute: A state-of-the-art training facility to train the very best techies. The Tech Institute will draw the best regional and national talent to both develop and learn to apply the latest technology solutions. The Tech Institute will offer a captive labor pool from which to draw the best students for local businesses and drive new business innovation.
Research Hub: For tech developers and researchers who want to spin off from established entities, the Research Hub offers a home — a safety net to catch those considering the move to greener R&D pastures. It also sits well along the Euclid Corridor with research initiatives that may spin out from CASE, the hospitals, and elsewhere.
Innovation/Wet Lab: Existing businesses seeking the next cutting-edge solution can participate in strategically focused innovation sessions with leading intellectual property and solutions experts to develop future value propositions and drive profitability for their businesses. The primary goal is to build a center for excellence that will eventually attract new and existing businesses from around the region, state and country that need state-of-the-art innovation solutions. The crib for converting those innovations to commercial solutions can be the Research Hub or the Smart Apps Corridor.
Smart Apps Corridor: Now that Cleveland is an Intel® Digital City, Thompson Hine, in conjunction with the City of Cleveland, OneCleveland and Team NEO, are hosting an international tech summit with 30-50 of the best global smart applications companies. These companies will compete for “shop” positions along the Euclid Corridor and utilize its dark fiber to create innovative software solutions that will build new local businesses in Cleveland. During the course of this “start-up” phase, these companies will be free to utilize resources of the Research Hub and the Innovation/Wet Lab to further develop their ideas, solutions and products.
