Tech Square, a highly decorated home for innovation and entrepreneurship adjacent to the Georgia Tech main campus in Atlanta initiated by The University Financing Foundation (TUFF) and Georgia Tech in 2003, was designed to allow mission critical research and education initiatives to thrive by connecting people and ideas that have lasting positive impacts on our communities. A new partnership between Tech Square resident, Georgia Tech’s Institute for People and Technology (IPaT), and Emory University’s Brain Health Center is launching an innovative research and therapy program for people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), which is often a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease.
