The incubator model in Atlanta is changing

… and it’s to the advantage of SBIR GA.  
ATDC (The Advanced Technology Development Center), Georgia
Tech’s VentureLab program and SBIR GA are all being merged under the umbrella
of ATDC.  ATDC is one of the
nation’s most successful incubators having assisted more than 120 entrepreneurs
raise more than a billion dollars in investments.  Membership in ATDC affords companies top-notch coaching,
consulting and networking in addition to a community of entrepreneurs from
which they could learn.  Most
member companies are “early-stage”. 
Georgia Tech’s VentureLab is more like a NICU assisting Georgia Tech faculty
with commercializing technology they developed in the laboratory.  VentureLab staff coach, feed and
breathe life into projects in the hope of creating a successful start-up. 
Today it was announced that the new ATDC is open for
business.  We will now be assisting
entrepreneurs around the state both virtual and brick and mortar.  Membership is open to any Georgia technology
company at any stage.  Our desire is
to assist more Georgia entrepreneurs navigate the start-up world. 
What will this mean for those interested in SBIR and STTR
funding?  SBIR GA will continue to
deliver the same great service to Georgia researchers/companies needing SBIR
Assistance!  Being connected to
these two powerful entrepreneurial entities will hopefully foster a sense of community
for those seeking funding to grow their company.  Connie Ruffner, Julie Collins, and John Mills will continue
to guide you through the SBIR/STTR process.
