WTN Partnership with Minnesota

Minnesota Technology, Inc. is a $10 million public, 501c(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to improve the competitive ability of Minnesota industry through the application and development of technology. The corporation has 90 employees in six offices throughout the state of Minnesota. MTI's field staff includes 40 professionals, most of whom hold engineering or manufacturing business degrees. The field specialists who work with companies on a daily basis become, in many instances, "adjunct staff" and are the first person a company turns to when it has questions about technology. MTI provides low-cost or no-cost services to about 600 firms annually.

Minnesota Technology, Inc. offers companies assistance in accessing and utilizing technologies developed by federal laboratories. MTI and WTN are establishing a collaborative partnership to link Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) technologies and resources to Minnesota companies. This important endeavor will enhance MTI's ability to provide needed services to Minnesota clients in a timely manner, and will be a positive promotion of Air Force capabilities. Due to the changing nature of the production supply chain, more and more suppliers of materials and components to OEMs are acquiring advanced technology capabilities. Like their larger counterparts, smaller companies need to utilize technology developments to stay competitive. As such, they become ideal vehicles for transferring new technologies from federal laboratories into the commercial marketplace. These are the companies that make up the MTI customer-base.
