The Future of Atlanta
Hypepotamus is the open source business development engine for the entire Atlanta tech startup community. We produce media to connect Atlanta tech startups with talent, corporations, and media outlets.
Atlanta has great designers, coders, storytellers, and innovators. Many of these folks don’t even know the other exists or that the person they need is in school or working just down the street. Most of these folks don’t realize that there are great startups in Atlanta are in need of the skills and expertise that they possess. These same startups don’t know some of the best creative schools are in town. Sadly, some of these folks end up leaving Atlanta because they aren’t aware of the resources and opportunity that exists nearby.
This is a self-fulfilling problem that needs a long-term, self-fulfilling solution. We see this happening from the ground-up through awareness, collaboration, and education focused on talented people, corporate innovators, and media outlets. This solution requires a greater density of media and events that enable discovery, education, and validation. Passionate, dedicated entrepreneurs are at the heart of everything we do, as we connect them with the students, customers, and media outlets who will fuel their success.
