As collaborative workspaces pop up all over Atlanta, Atlanta is the technology hub of the South, no doubt and Georgia Tech produces a significant amount of entrepreneurial and technological talent that boosts the economy, creates new wealth and fosters high-paying jobs — but often for other states. One Alumni has other plans in mind.
Robin Bienfait, an Engineering & Masters graduate from GT Business School, is taking Peachtree Corners by storm with the opening of a 43,000 square-foot Global Innovation Center – Atlanta Tech Park.
“I want to turn it around,” says Robin Bienfait, “so that when you become a technologist here, you can stay here whether you want to start something yourself or be part of one of the Fortune 500 that has decided to come to Atlanta.”
“We are an accelerator,” she explains. “It’s for start-up enterprises that have passed the incubator stage and are going to continue. The Global Innovation Center will give them a place and a community to be part of, and many of these companies will include Tech graduates. I already have seven or eight Georgia Tech-born growth companies that want to be part of it.”
Set to open in October of 2017, Atlanta Tech Park will boast state of the art facilities and is currently taking appointments and membership applications.
