The largest metropolis in the Southeast, Atlanta’s laid-back charm has attracted a diverse international population to its robust business
community over the years, with experts in engineering, defense, epidemiology, biology, economy, technology, biotechnology, computer science,
physics and mathematics bringing a new vibe to the region. A bright beacon for entrepreneurs looking to tap into the wealth of knowledge and
lifestyle of the deep south, the blossoming tech population has not only brought in investment firms the world round, but also given birth
to a world-renowned fine dining scene, an unrivaled fiber optic network, and the Beltline, one of Atlanta’s most ambitious green projects yet.
A phoenix that rose from the ashes of the Civil War, the Greater Atlanta region has grown beyond Atlanta to its surrounding suburbs, with the most explosive growth in the cities of Alpharetta, Marietta, and Savannah. Headquartering over 50% of all fin-tech companies in the United States, Atlanta’s dominance in the Southeast is all but assured for the next few years in spite of its close proximity to the newly minted tech hub of Greenville, South Carolina.
Atlanta’s greatest challenge is to sustain the explosive growth of new technology companies in the next few years. Scalability of HR
infrastructure, ensuring attraction, development and retention of key functions, and staying ahead of the compensation curve in both sales
and engineering will be crucial for success of this newest batch of y-combinators. On the flip side, Atlanta’s established conglomerates,
among them Coca-Cola, AT&T and Delta, will need to focus on streamlining business units and keeping high-potentials happy to remain competitive
in the talent market moving forward.
