The competitive bid process included several organizations from across the country. Ultimately, it was determined by the CIC board that GrowthLogic is the organization best equipped to build on the CIC legacy moving forward.

"Like the CIC, GrowthLogic's goal is to support companies wanting to commercialize their products and services," remarked Josie Graham, CEO of CIC, "GrowthLogic is experienced, capable and dedicated to taking the CIC methods online to a global audience of entrepreneurs. At OCE Discovery 2018, we start our transition to GrowthLogic by directly engaging with our community of innovators together."
