Green Industrial Manufacturing Ecosystem

A project of KO Consulting LLC

Overview of
GIME

Green Industrial Manufacturing Ecosystem (GIME) was founded to create a regional ecosystem in the Mahoning Valley of socially responsible manufacturing businesses. Located in the Mahoning Valley, GIME develops property for industrial use, incubates manufacturing startups, and offers supportive services and capital to its members. We are developing a diverse array of pipeline projects, including a bottling facility for local breweries, CBD oil extraction, and hemp waste product research and development.

Goal One

Support research and development for green industrial manufacturing.

Goal Two

Build production capacity for manufacturing startups in our incubator space.

Goal Three

Secure capital for startup manufacturing.

Goal Four

Redevelop legacy manufacturing properties to meet the needs of new businesses.

What We Offer

At the core of our work is a passion for assisting small businesses in their growth. We offer a variety of services including:

Manufacturing Space

Through our partnership with CASTLO, we are developing incubator space for industrial startups. Through our partnership with The Greener Futures Fund (a project of KO Consulting), we will invest in legacy industrial space and leverage tax incentives to build to the needs of small businesses and startups at a competitive price.

Startup Capital

Through a combination of traditional investing, government grants, and research and development funding, GIME offers access to the capital needed to develop new projects, expand existing manufacturing lines, and relocate to the Mahoning Valley.

Business Services

KO Consulting, our parent company, offers in depth experience with a wide range of business services. From strategic planning, to securing and managing government grants, to developing organizational capacity, we offer the services needed to transform an idea into a successful business.

Business Ecosystems

We are developing a local campus of related industries to take advantage of economies of scale and develop new products from waste. By integrating agriculture, hemp CBD extraction, and processing of waste biomass into one central campus, we are poised to become a hub of new industrial development.
