The Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute (EI²) helps companies, entrepreneurs, economic developers and communities improve their competitiveness through the application of science, technology and innovation. One of the most comprehensive university-based programs of business and industry assistance, technology commercialization and economic development in the nation, the Enterprise Innovation Institute provides programs that:

  • Help entrepreneurs launch and build successful companies.
  • Improve the competitiveness of established companies.
  • Commercialize technology developed in Georgia Tech research labs.
  • Help local and state governments adopt innovative practices.
  • Assist economic developers with innovative approaches.
  • Serve as a bridge to Georgia Tech resources.

The Enterprise Innovation Institute seeks to redefine the service role for universities and how they support local, state, regional and national economies. This effort is part of Georgia Tech’s overall goal of defining the technological university of the 21st century.

In the future, the ability to develop and apply innovation will drive the success of all types of enterprises. The Enterprise Innovation Institute will be a source of that innovation, drawing on the experience and expertise of Georgia Tech and affiliated organizations.
