Gary Webb, JBOD Storage Solutions founder
Gwinnett Innovation Park (GIP) has named JBOD Storage Solutions the first recipient of its quarterly Founders Grant. Sponsored by GIP and Intelligent Systems, the grant is a $25,000 quarterly award to an eHub Nspire Program participant or a qualified company in the GIP.
“I am honored to receive the Founders Grant. The GIP Trustees have created a platform to help technology start-ups grow and succeed,” acknowledges Gary Webb, JBOD Storage Solutions founder whose company markets SSD-based data storage arrays. “I highly recommend any Atlanta-based technology entrepreneur to apply for this program and look forward to continue participating in the Nspire program.”
“The Founders Grant is designed to be a ‘propellant’ to help an early stage technology company achieve an important near-term milestone and accelerate its business,” explains Leland Strange, local serial entrepreneur, investor and supporter of hundreds of technology companies in the Atlanta area. “The Gwinnett Innovation Park Trustees were impressed with all of the Nspire companies, but believe that the $25,000 will help JBOD Storage Solutions the most at this point in their company’s development and can play a key role in helping them reach the next level.”
