Innovation Ecosystem

Fueled by the Georgia Institute of Technology

Georgia Tech fuels economic development by playing a major role in the region's innovation ecosystem: a network of established companies, startups, public- and private-sector organizations, and the University System of Georgia, all working together to spur innovation, develop new technologies, and expand job opportunities.

The main hub of the innovation ecosystem is Technology Square in Midtown, Atlanta. It's here that many of Georgia Tech's collaborative partners tap into the Institute's expertise, students, faculty, and researchers to transfer ideas and technology from labs to the marketplace; top-ranking incubation and accelerator programs attract entrepreneurs and startups; and academic programs instill entrepreneurial confidence in students and learners of all types.
