Atlanta is the business centre of the southeast and the location for the world’s most travelled and efficient airport. The home to the 3rd highest concentration of fortune 500s in the nation with companies such as Coca-Cola, Delta, and CNN, and the leading city for the technology, bioscience, health IT, cleantech, supply chain, and automotive industries.
From October 3rd-October 15th two Atlanta startups traveled to France to be connected with Toulouse’s startup events, gain access to European decision makers, and engage with investors and business leaders in their respective sectors.
From October 31st-November 11th Atlanta welcomed two selected startups from Toulouse to live, work, and learn.
