Last night, October 15, 2013, Atlanta’s digital media super stars and start-up supporters gathered together to mobilize and shine a light on the absolute awesomeness which is Atlanta’s creative & technology industries. The ChooseAtl event launched both the ChooseAtl campaign and website.
Attendees included representatives from large home grown companies like Lisa Bobb of Coca Cola as well as individual experts within the industry like Sandi Solow of I Send Your Email. Councilman Kwanza Hall provided a key note address, expressing his support for start-ups and pledging to help start-ups “connect the dots”.
This grassroots campaign is led by Adam Harrell of Nebo Agency. Mr. Harrell noted that Atlanta is where “quality of life and opportunity” meet. Unlike other cities which excel in one or the other Atlanta has both quality of life and opportunity and has it in spades. The goal of ChooseAtl is not just to create bigger and better opportunities in the digital media arena but rather to be sure the world is aware of what is already going on in Atlanta.
