Two VentureLab startups, Polaritek Systems Inc. and Carbice Nanotechnologies, were awarded GRA Ventures seed funding in the first two weeks of 2015. GRA Ventures (previously known as the GRA VentureLab program) was established in 2002 to facilitate the commercialization of technologies emerging from the state’s universities through the formation of start-up companies, with the stated objective of increasing the number of innovation-based jobs in Georgia.
Polaritek Systems is commercializing a novel, patented residual stress measurement technology based on polariscopy, under license from the Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC).
Carbice Nanotechnologies develops market-leading material solutions for efficient, reliable, and adaptable energy transfer. By enabling superior thermal management, its current products create substantial value in electronic device markets: mobile, power modules, servers, displays, aerospace, energy, and defense.
