Real Time Matchmakers: Georgia’s Centers of Innovation Offer Help to State’s Key Industries

We wanted to share an article in Georgia Trend that features the Georgia Centers of Innovation. The piece, “Real Time Matchmakers: Georgia’s Centers of Innovation offer help to the state’s key industries,” is about how the Centers of Innovation provide the expertise and connections to help Georgia companies and strategic industries solve problems, grow quickly and compete globally. “The centers have been quietly at it for several years, with the kind of success economic developers dream of. And it may be the best is yet to come, as word spreads of the centers and their work,” the writer claims.

Featuring successful clients like Paulk VineyardsThrush AircraftSolarMax, and Polymer Aging Concepts, the article shows the depth of expertise the Centers offer Georgia businesses across the strategic industries of aerospace, agribusiness, energy, life sciences & IT, logistics, and manufacturing.

“One of the things we’re learning as a company in Georgia is that there are these Centers of Innovation that can help our organization. So a company like ours that sort of bubbles in agribusiness and aerospace, but also in logistics finds that the Centers of Innovation are wonderful resources.” -Eric Rojek, Vice President, Thrush Aircraft
