We turn projects into profits for manufacturers.

Interested in growing your bottom line, but not sure where to start? How to find trustworthy partners? Or where to find funding? NextCorps’ Growth Services can help you answer these questions and more!

Eligible Companies

If you’re a Rochester or Finger Lakes manufacturer, printer, food and beverage, or production-related company, we can connect you to local and national resources to help you expand and thrive. We also bring an element to your business projects that others don’t: access to a host of funding opportunities—thanks to funding from the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the NYSTAR division of Empire State Development
