Metro Atlanta is a world-class hub for technology and mobility, leading the way in creating a national center for innovation and industry growth.

Atlanta is one of the fastest growing high-tech urban centers in the nation.

Powered by the strength of more than 13,000 technology companies, the city is established for its strengths in telecom, Internet security, digital media and a thriving mobility ecosystem.

Within the next three to five years, projections show technology companies will invest more than $1 billion in Georgia – investments that will hone in on:

  • Mobility technology
  • Digital media and content
  • The Internet
  • Network security
  • Financial transactions processing
  • Software development and engineering
  • Health information technology
  • Smart grid technology

In addition, one of metro Atlanta’s greatest strengths in technology is its strong sense of community. The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), one of the largest tech organizations in the country, brings together the technology community through events, initiative programs and networking opportunities.

All of these factors lead to a strong workforce, diverse centers of intellectual innovation and a superior environment for technological advancements. If you are looking for a technological home that will help you advance in the 21st century, metro Atlanta has the foundation - and the future - to help your company soar.
