As a catalyst for growing emerging technology industries in Northeast Ohio, NorTech helps build regional innovation clusters that create jobs, attract capital and have a long-term, positive impact. To this end, the organization has created a comprehensive cluster development model that can be applied to multiple technology-based industries. From July 2010 to December 2011, cluster companies supported by NorTech have attracted $34.3 million in capital, created 396 jobs and generated $26.6 million in payroll.
