SimCraft accepted to ATDC @ Georgia Tech

SimCraft LLC has announced that they have been accepted into the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The company plans to relocate its headquarters in the next week to join other ATDC companies on the campus of Georgia Tech.

"This is a major accomplishment for our young company," said SimCraft CEO Sean MacDonald, "with all the ATDC has to offer us, we are in a fantastic position to execute our business plan, and to achieve great success with our affordable motion simulation products."

The Advanced Technology Development Center is a nationally recognized science and technology incubator that helps Georgia entrepreneurs launch and build successful companies. ATDC provides strategic business advice and connects its member companies to the people and resources they need to succeed.

More than 100 companies have emerged from ATDC, including publicly-traded firms such as MindSpring Enterprises - now part of EarthLink. ATDC has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the nation's top non-profit incubators. ATDC was formed in 1980 to stimulate growth in Georgia's technology business base and now has locations in Atlanta, Columbus, Savannah and Warner Robins.

Their mission is to increase the technology business base in Georgia by helping entrepreneurs launch and build successful companies.

Georgia invests in ATDC to strengthen the state's technology community, so companies aren't required to give up equity in exchange for services. To facilitate start-up and accommodate growth, they offer turnkey services and flexible lease terms in their facilities.

ATDC is part of Georgia Tech's Office of Economic Development and Technology Ventures (EDTV). This organization serves as Georgia Tech's primary organization for economic development, technology transfer and technology commercialization. Units within EDTV provide:
* assistance to Georgia entrepreneurs as they launch and build successful technology companies
* technology-driven solutions for Georgia companies, communities and economic developers as they help grow the state's economy
* assistance to Georgia Tech faculty members in evaluating the commercial potential of technology innovations and forming start-up companies
