INTRODUCING THE OHIO THIRD FRONTIER OPEN INNOVATION INCENTIVE (OII)
The Ohio Third Frontier is an internationally recognized technology-based economic development initiative that supports existing industries that are transforming themselves with new, globally competitive products and fostering the attraction of new companies in emerging industry sectors. The organization recognized that businesses need solutions to technical problems, but may not have the in-house expertise or know where to find them. Through the Open Innovation Incentive (OII), the Ohio Third Frontier provides funding to Ohio Middle Market companies to engage in NineSigma's Open Innovation model to identify new technology solutions to their most pressing challenges.
