About & Team
The Future of Atlanta is Connected Awesomeness.
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 of the students, corporate innovators, and startups of Atlanta. This solution requires a greater density of media and events that enable discovery, connectivity, education, validation and storytelling. Passionate, dedicated entrepreneurs are at the heart of everything we do, as we connect them with the students and customers who will fuel their success.
