J.K. Hage III, the firm’s managing member, has spearheaded numerous business ventures, including:

  • Independent Wireless One Corp. (also known as U.S. Unwired)
  • The Griffiss Institute

Independent Wireless One Corp. brought digital wireless telephone service to the Mohawk Valley. J.K. had the idea for this company in 1994 while thinking of ways rural residents could participate in the 21st century economy. That idea became Independent Wireless One Corp. (IWO), a national Sprint PCS wireless affiliate which ultimately operated as Sprint PCS in 15 states.  IWO later merged into US Unwired, a public wireless company which traded on NASDAQ.  Finally, in 2005, IWO and US Unwired were purchased by Sprint PCS.

J.K. Hage III was the founding Executive Director of the Griffiss Institute (GI), a market-driven national collaboration of industry, government, and academia. This non-profit organization is located at the former Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome, NY, and is dedicated to applied research, training, and services in information security.  J.K. Hage III played a pivotal role in raising the initial $6M in grants and in planning GI’s original 20,000 square foot building. GI since has expanded its building to 43,000 square feet, including incubator space. J.K. served as GI’s Executive Director for GI’s first three years.

Today, the Griffiss Institute remains dedicated to the intersection of technology transfer among private industry, government, and academia. GI is at the forefront of the growing technology based 21st century economy in Upstate NY and beyond. GI has forged a partnership with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). GI also has established the Commercialization Academy, which pairs AFRL technologies with students and encourages them to launch their own ventures targeting commercialization of appropriate AFRL technologies.

In addition, J.K. Hage III is a licensed real estate broker and has significant personal experience in real estate development and construction, including his development of several shopping centers and retail enterprises in Alaska.
