Atlanta has had a big week with broad interest and participation in Venture Atlanta and MobilityLive 2016.  Each event drew large crowds and spawned idea sharing among entrepreneurs and investors, innovators and technologists.

During Venture Atlanta, MAC released its second comprehensive evaluation of innovation data for the 29-county region, Metro Atlanta Innovation Indicators Project.

And, this digital update shared by MAC spotlights some key reasons why Atlanta is fertile ground for new ventures.

Over the past 10 years, Georgia companies have:

  • Raised $5.5 billion in venture capital
  • Attracted $16 billion in private equity
  • Merger and acquisition deals were valued at $180 billion

In past two years, Atlanta has outpaced Austin, San Diego, Research Triangle, and Denver- Boulder in attracting private investment dollars and total number of M & A deals.
