YBI Awarded $451K Advanced Manufacturing Program grant

YBI Welcomes Israeli Copper-Ink Printing Company

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Youngstown Business Incubator’s program to bring Israeli companies to northeastern Ohio has yielded another new arrival in copper-ink printing company PrintCB.

The company was introduced this morning at a press conference at the YBI offices.

PrintCB has developed a copper-ink application that can be integrated into production lines for switches, radio-frequency identification tags, circuitry and wearable technology.

YBI and PrintCB officials first met last year during the incubator’s first trip to Israel. There, CEO Barb Ewing met with several venture capital fund and company leaders, including PrintCB CEO and founder Sagi Daren.

“After much discussion with the team at the YBI, Sagi and team decided that in order for them to take their company to the next level, a presence in the American market is what they needed,” the YBI said in a release. “Before making the move to the U.S. himself, Sagi has hired Evan Schumann as PrintCB’s Director of Business Development.”

Schumann, a Kent State University graduate, works with YBI’s Inspire Lab.

The ultimate goal is for PrintCB to have a space for research and development or office operations, “if not both,” the incubator said.
