The Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) initiative is focused on working collaboratively to build metro Atlanta's innovation capacity - the region's ability to produce new ideas, technologies, products, and processes. Strengthening the innovation ecosystem so the elements required to translate ideas to products and grow businesses are readily accessible will ensure that metro Atlanta remains globally competitive and prospers as a region. Innovation is the most important catalyst driving regional prosperity. And it's the result of a complex interaction of inventors, entrepreneurs, companies, investors, universities, and other institutions.
