On Tuesday, Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts announced a new initiative called Massachusetts Business Connect. This program is designed to assist large corporation seeking innovation and cutting-edge skills with small businesses and research universities that specialize in those needs.
A major focus of the initiative will be building relationships. Proctor & Gamble participated in the pilot program last August and September. Currently, defense contractors Lockheed Martin Sippican, Textron, and Dynamics Research have signed up to participate in the program’s next set of connections.
