Informatics consultants have deep personal and professional roots in
several of the world's leading high-tech hot spots.
2006 book The Technopolis Columns, by G.I. Managing Partner Fred
Phillips, led to engagements
- In Austin, we were officials of the
renowned IC2 Institute, teachers at the original Austin
Incubator, and founders of the Austin Technology Council. These
organizations have spurred hundreds of startups and relocations to
Austin and to the Waco-Monterrey corridor.
- In Portland, we launched the Northwest
Education Cluster and, with conferences and workshops, supported the
advanced display cluster in the Northwest, and served on the Board of
Directors of the Software Association of Oregon.
- In San Diego, home of the world's
premier biotech cluster and an emerging military informatics cluster,
we have supervised dissertations on San Diego pharmaceutical R&D,
and advised the city's new biomimicry cluster initiative.
Informatics consultants apply this deep experience to the benefit our
