Midtown Innovation District

Greg Chambers, Innovation Consultant, talks about the diverse set of assets that contribute to Midtown's innovative energy.“Districts that combine a university, an educated populace, a dynamic business community and fast broadband connections will be the job factories of the future."  Excerpted from Thomas Friedman, NYTimes 1/3/12

Midtown is an urban setting that is both stimulating and convenient.  A place where you can have five meetings and never get in a car, or get out from behind your computer and take a walk.

Despite the ability today to transmit information just about anywhere in an instant, location still matters. When you couple a livable, walkable district with colleges and universities, crucial support and resources for startups and entrepreneurs, a thriving business community and robust infrastructure that delivers lightening quick connectivity, you get something powerful:  a center of innovation.  Midtown Atlanta is just that.  A real place, where people live and work and have fun.
