Technology Square Innovation Tour
Take a walking tour of some of the highlights at the epicenter of high tech collaboration. Technology Square (Tech Square) is the main hub of innovation at Georgia Tech. It’s here that Georgia Tech’s collaborative partners tap into the expertise of students, faculty, and researchers to transfer ideas and technology from labs to the marketplace. In and around Tech Square, there are more than 35 corporate innovation, design, development, and technology centers representing companies such as Delta Air Lines, Honeywell, UCB, AT&T, Siemens, Stanley Black and Decker, Home Depot, Chick-fil-A, NCR, and Anthem, as well as the state of Georgia’s start-up incubator, ATDC. Tech Square is also home to the brand-new Coda building, a nearly 750,000 square-foot mixed-use innovation hub of advanced computing designed to create new opportunities in interdisciplinary research, commercialization, and sustainability. During this site visit and tour, you will learn about top-ranking startup incubation and accelerator programs, and the spaces they have created to attract entrepreneurs, startups and corporate labs, as well as discuss the elements that create communities of innovation here in Midtown. Stay tuned for additional details about specific stops and details!

Georgia Tech strives to be a leader in sustainability and to promote action and awareness through education, research, and operational practice, and on this tour, you will dive deep into places and programs that highlight this commitment.
