Choose ATL has just announced that it is now joining forces with Startup Atlanta. Choose ATL launched in October of 2013 with the goal of raising recognition and supporting technology and media companies in Atlanta. In 2011 city leaders convened in a series of round tables to determine how best to support entrepreneurship in the city and resulted in the creation of Startup Atlanta. Startup Atlanta connects members of the entrepreneurial community to essential resources such as incubators, capital sources (both human and financial), and work spaces.
Moving forward Startup Atlanta will offer financial aid and volunteer assistance to multiple entrepreneurial efforts including the efforts of Choose ATL. This assistance will be key to a number of upcoming Choose ATL events and media efforts including allowing them to have a presence at major events outside of Atlanta such as the SXSW Interactive.
