New ATDC Director Says Broadening Mission Statewide is a Priority

Nina Sawczuk, 48, formerly assistant director of the Advanced Technology Development Center in Atlanta who took the helm this month as ATDC manager and director of Startup Services, says extending its programs beyond core suite members is a priority.  ATDC provides space, mentoring, and contacts for Atlanta startups.

It also manages the Georgia Tech Edison Fund.  Currently, Sawczuk tells us, ATDC includes more than 300 firms, about 20 to 30 resident in its seed or suite space offices.
