New Georgia Network connects entrepreneurs with the State’s eco-system

Atlanta, GA, December 12, 2015 – Brite Idea Lab, a Georgia corporation, is launching a new program to make Georgia the first state with a state-wide network connecting Entrepreneurs with the State’s corporations, business resources, organizations, universities, and government resources.

The new network, known as GBIN (Georgia Brite Idea Network), goal is to connect Georgia’s entrepreneurs, inventors, students and small business owners, based on “needs,” to the State’s 47+ Fortune 1000 corporations (plus others), 60+ Universities, 16 SBDC’s, Government Agencies and 20+ organizations in Georgia’s entrepreneurial eco-system.

The GBIN solution is a modern-day Match-Engine, extending today’s search processes where “Ideal” candidate sets are automatically delivered based on members business credentials, needs, and match preferences. Matches can be distilled to validate the fit, request a connection for more details and then followed to set up an automatic notification going forward.

More importantly, the companion to matching “submitters” with “Collectors” is Portfolio Management once the connection is validated. This enables both parties to group and store profiles and ideas in their back office to evaluate, incubate, curate and most importantly “Dispatch” to ideas downstream to other colleagues or business units.

Larry White, President and CEO of the Ritz Group Organization, stated that the Ritz Group is pleased to support promoting GBIN because Georgia has so much state-wide Entrepreneurial resources with support from the Governor, Atlanta and Alpharetta Mayors, world-class Corporations, Innovation Foundry’s, incubators, accelerators, plus new Entrepreneur Degree Programs evolving throughout the University System. Missing is the infrastructure to connect these resources and foster collaboration to accelerate growth, job creation, as well as serve as proof-item that Georgia is a leader in small business growth.

GBIN is hosted on Brite Idea Lab. Brite Idea Lab provides a cloud-based pipeline management platform for business, organizations, universities, and government to “collect” Innovation based on their specifications from employees and the outside grassroots entrepreneurial world. Conversely, Brite Idea Lab enables “submitters” to confidently post, without giving away their IP, to find resources in today’s global Internet world based on “Matching” Needs.

The GBIN Program is scheduled to officially launch January 1, 2016, with soft-launch in December 2015. For more information on GBIN go to
