History

Owners Gail and Jim Greenwood formed Greenwood Consulting Group, Inc. (GCGI) in 1996 after many years of operating small consulting, training, and data processing businesses under a host of other names.  Jim started his first consulting business while still a graduate student at Harvard University. 

Owners

Gail and Jim Greenwood own GCGI.  We are a husband and wife team that demonstrates that spouses can be successful in many types of relationships, including as business partners. Gail is a native Floridian.  Jim hails from New Mexico, where he served six years on the County Council in his hometown.  We share in the lives of Gail's three grown sons and their families, including our granddaughter and grandsons.  Our love for the ocean and warm, tropical weather led to our relocation to Sanibel Island, off the west coast of Florida.

Experience

GCGI has extensive experience in working with small and start up businesses.  As demonstrated in other parts of this website, two areas in which we have significant expertise in developing and managing small business incubators, and assisting small firms in competing for part of the $2 billion plus Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.  We also have managed a Small Business Development Center (SBDC), in which we counseled and trained literally hundreds of prospective entrepreneurs and small business owners and managers.  We have worked with several Federal Laboratories in their technology transfer programs, particularly as those efforts apply to small business and Federal Lab employees seeking to spin off new firms around technology.  In our spare time, we have worked on a variety of other interesting projects ranging from analyzing the economic impacts of a college on its host region and preparing a handbook for small towns impacted by large chain stores like Wal-Mart.
