G-Technology Group is a one-stop engineering and product development firm. We partner with entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses to help turn their ideas into professional designs, prototypes, and marketable products. We also produce our own disruptive innovations that target untapped markets, including SONAR GLASSES, a new assistive mobility product for the blind and visually impaired. We receive R&D grant funding from federal and state agencies, including the National Science Foundation and the Commonwealth of Virginia, for innovative technology development.
Our mission is to support determined inventors, entrepreneurs and start-ups actualize their vision by providing the highest quality product development, prototyping, and manufacturing.
Our method is to begin with a casual discussion of your idea. We then work with you to develop an actualization road-map of the concept. From there, we progress to designing your invention, engineering your 3D CAD files, and building your first prototype. If required, our team will even fashion your packaging, file all patents, and guide you all the way through manufacturing.
Our service portfolio includes:
- Complementary product consultation
- Design & engineering
- Prototype development
- Product testing
- Low volume manufacturing
- Patent research
- Deployment & marketing
Arman Ghodousi, CEO: Arman received his doctorate degree in chemistry & biochemistry from Arizona State University. He has a diverse background in technology research and development spanning from military to private sector and is proficient in pioneering new technologies, program management, product development, and business execution.
About our CEO: Arman Ghodousi is an inquisitive scientist with a passion for solving real-world problems with simple, practical, and creative scientific solutions. Arman received his doctorate degree in chemistry and biochemistry while developing chemotherapeutic drugs for cancer research. After graduation, he joined the U.S. Navy as a commissioned officer and received ample leadership and management experience while conducting cutting-edge scientific research at the National Laboratories. After honorable discharge, he was hired as a senior chemist, and later promoted to the chief technology officer, at a private defense company. There, he managed development of products including a device that assists police and military in detection of illegal substances. In 2013, Arman decided to pursue his own passion and launched a technology company to bridge the gap between high-tech laboratory research and the needs of underserved populations.
Even prior to launch of the company, he noticed that the disabled population had limited cost-effective technological innovations geared toward mobility independence. Blind people in particular had no means of protecting their upper body from overhanging objects such as tree branches and low ceilings. The launch of this company provided a suitable platform for him to provide a cost-effective solution to help blind people avoid running into overhanging obstacles, which resulted in our first product, SONAR GLASSES.
Arman’s vision centers on growing a diverse and inclusive environment that values its workforce, understands its customers’ pain points, and works diligently to address genuine market needs. Promoting a flexible, pleasant, and cooperative work environment is a top priority for him and is deemed critical for enhancing employees’ productivity and the creativity required to solve challenging real-world problems in a unique and cost-effective way.
At his core, Arman is a passionate entrepreneur who enjoys experimenting, learning new skills everyday, and most importantly, contributing to society in a positive way.
