Welcome to my Home Page. My name is Joe Graben. In addition to being the President of Ask Graben! I am also a Business Development Specialist with the University of Southern Mississippi - Office of Research and Economic Development (USM), located at the NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC),
Hancock County, MS.
I serve as the Director of Mississippi's Federal & State Technology Partnership Program (MS-FAST) supporting the participation of Mississippi's small high-tech companies in the federal
Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. I work closely with NASA SSC's Innovative Partnerships Program Office and other NASA Centers and federal agencies providing Outreach Support.
My job is to promote university, federal, state, and industry partnerships in order to assist Mississippi businesses with the transfer and development of technologies and "know how".
I am currently in the process of transitioning much of my work related, that is my technology transfer related information from this website over to my company domain: Ask Graben! As such, several of the links to pages on this site may have been removed or replaced with current up to date information on my company website.
You may e-mail me at either of the addresses listed below on this page.
As I am always adding more information to this site please check back from time to time to see what's new.
This site was established October 15, 1997.
Thank you for dropping by.
