Atlanta is So
Hot Right Now.
Hotlanta.

Welcome to the city that ranks among the top five Cities for Millennials (Money) and 10 Best Cities for Young Entrepreneurs (Forbes.) We’re affordable and diverse, we’ve got great restaurants and recreation, and we love our green spaces. Our nickname is “the Hollywood of the South.” Travel + Leisure called us “charming.” More peaches, less snow-shoveling.

intro-more

Atlanta is home to the third-largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the US, including Coke, Delta, Home Depot, and UPS, not to mention nonprofits like the American Cancer Society and Habitat for Humanity. Emory, Georgia Tech, and other top-flight universities turn out thousands of STEM grads every year, including many women and minorities.
Atlanta’s many startups create 33% of the city’s jobs and attract millions in seed funding and capital. Being home to 70% of the world’s financial transactions has made Atlanta home to top FinTech companies, too. In short, it’s easy to see why companies like Athena Health, Pandora, and MailChimp have set up shop in Atlanta. Don’t forget the Google Fiber.
