Keith McGreggor is adding new responsibilities to his “to do” list. And we couldn’t be prouder!
While continuing his role as director of VentureLab, Keith has joined the School of Interactive Computing as a professor of the practice and the GVU Center’s leadership team as associate director.
McGreggor has been instrumental in the leadership of Georgia Tech’s outreach to industry through the VentureLab, which has launched more than 303 startups, as well as the lead instructor for Georgia Tech’s National Science Foundation I-Corps efforts. The NSF Innovation Corps is a set of activities and programs that prepares scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and broadens the impact of select, NSF-funded, basic-research projects.
McGreggor also has a long history of entrepreneurship and technical innovation, having served as chief technology officer at 21e, VP of Software at Reflex Security, VP of Engineering at GuardedNet, founder and CTO of NetRoadshow, director of Engineering at Yahoo, and more.
“In his associate director role with GVU, Keith will lead our outreach to industry, including the development of new partnership programs as well as new ways to engage with the local, national, and global technology industry,” said Keith Edwards, director of the GVU Center.
McGreggor will also continue to be heavily involved with entrepreneurship efforts across campus. He will remain director of Georgia Tech’s VentureLab and maintain his leadership role with the I-Corps, as well as continue to teach the Georgia Tech Startup Lab undergrad entrepreneurship class.
“Having Keith as a part of the GVU leadership team is hugely exciting for me personally, and I’m confident he’ll amplify our efforts to connect our research to industry,” said Edwards.
