New England Innovation Alliance
The NEIA is an informal association of senior managers from small high-technology companies in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. It was founded in 2001 to provide a forum for exchanging experiences and challenges for small businesses primarily doing business with the US Government - including both R&D and product sales. Collectively, the members employ more than 1,000 scientists and engineers with more than $250 million/year in revenue.
The NEIA also provides a collective voice for members when communicating with the Government. We testify before Congress, arrange for meetings with our congressional delegations, and prepare position papers on items of mutual interest such as the SBIR program, contracting issues, and procurement activities.
Through monthly meetings at member locations, we discuss matters of mutual interest and share timely issues affecting our community. Membership is entirely self-supported. There are no dues. Time and costs for NEIA efforts are donated by the member companies.
