ALBANY — FuzeHub was awarded $150,000 by the U.S. Department of Energy to help close the gap between American innovators who develop new energy technologies and domestic manufacturers who produce them.
FuzeHub assists small and mid-sized New York state manufacturers with competitiveness. It will use the funds to deliver DOE’s Build4Scale training to help innovators connect with manufacturers. The training helps innovators avoid the common pitfalls of product design by teaching them manufacturing design fundamentals in the early stages of prototype development, and provides them with the know-how they need to work with manufacturers.
FuzeHub is part of the New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a network of organizations that provide growth and innovation services to small and mid-sized manufacturers in every corner of the state. Every year, NY MEP helps nearly 1,000 manufacturers create and retain jobs, increase profits, and save time and money, by providing affordable services ranging from technology acceleration to product development to manufacturing scale-up.
