Economic Development

Georgia State University knows research innovation fuels economic growth and therefore, we support the cutting edge research of our faculty and empower them to translate research discoveries into products and companies. This support also reaches out to the external research community to provide biotech start-up services through our CollabTech business incubator.

Supporting our researchers

The Office of Technology and Commercial Development Programs assists in the development and protection of intellectual property developed by Georgia State University faculty, staff and students. The office promotes the transfer of technology in an effort to provide benefit and support to the university’s academic mission, to enhance the urban and state economy, and to provide to the general public access to Georgia State Intellectual Property in a manner that is consistent with the university’s academic principles.
