WET Center Launches New Website
The WET Center has a new and improved website! Since early February, our marketing team has been feverishly working on reimagining our website, which is at the epicenter of our rebranding efforts. We are dedicated to supporting water, energy, and ag startups and we are excited to continue to do so with a more accessible, user-friendly, visually stimulating platform. We have included new data, updated WET Membership options, a COVID-19 resource page, advising services, and more! Click here to see all the new features.
CMTC & The WET Center are here to help!
California's Manufacturing Network (CMN), formed and led by CMTC, provides services exclusively to Small and Medium-Sized Manufacturers (SMMs) throughout California.
The Water, Energy and Technology (WET) Center is proudly working with CMTC in providing meaningful help to over 7,000 California SMMs to survive, recover, and thrive as they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Outreach Program is funded by the CARES Act Stimulus Package 2020 – and is managed by CMTC – California’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Center.
Small to medium-sized manufacturers are welcome to join a FREE business workshop on September 2, 2020, at 10:30 AM which we have shared below.
