Convening scientists, engineers, academics and other solvers like you--Fuse combines brilliant minds (like you!) and agile manufacturing hubs to transform product and technology innovation.
Fuse delivers greater speed and design options when compared to trandition product development techniques. As a community, we acclereate product and technolgoy development by marrying open innovation with prototyping and small batch manufacturing.
WHO IS POWERING FUSE?
GE Global Operation's GENIUSLINK teamTM recently launched Fuse, GE's new crowd-powered manufacturing business model. The GENIUSLINK team, GE's open innovation and talent on-demand experts, is building the Fuse network--across the globe, industries and fucntions--to develop an innovation ecosystem at scale.
Physical operations of Fuse, such as prototyping and small batch manufacturing, will take place in brick-and-mortar facilities--either by being embedded into a sponsor's current production facilities--or through a standalone micrfactory. These microfactories are designed for collaborating--with customers, end-users, entrepreneurs, student groups and more--providing a multi-use space for experimentation, market validation and more.
