NYBDC Participates in ITAC's 4th Annual Solutions Fair
On Tuesday, June 4th, ITAC held their 4th Annual Solutions Fair at Pace University Manhattan. The fair serves as a forum for manufacturers to meet technology experts through one-to-one consultations. Manufacturers in attendance are able to get assistance with solving obstacles in areas such as, packaging, supply chain, energy and sustainability, and workforce development.
Daniel Hochman, ITAC Program Manager, said, " The Solutions Fair is a success because it allows companies to not only meet with one another and network, but also address some of their most pressing technical and process challenges. We’re able to accurately match our clients with experts from around the state from various university industrial partnership programs."
NYBDC served as a sponsor for the event – helping to make this meeting between manufacturers and resources a possibility. Event sponsors also included Pace University, SourceHOV, and Lucas & Mercanti LLP. As an administrator of the NYC Food Manufacturers Growth Fund, the event served as a means for NYBDC to connect with entrepreneurs seeking financing for their food-related businesses. 
There were more than twenty Industry resources in attendance including Rochester Institute of Technology, Stony Brook University, and Syracuse Center of Excellence. Click here to see the full list of resource partners present.
