WHAT’S HAPPENING

Congratulations to the Invest Atlanta team, which won two Gold Excellence in Economic Development Awards at the 2019 International Economic Development Council Annual Conference. The award honors the world’s top organizations and individuals who create positive change in their communities.

Invest Atlanta was recognized for its Students2Startups program and its immersive 2018 Annual Report, beating out hundreds of submissions from a dozen different countries.

“It means so much to have our industry leadership recognized in this way,” said Dr. Eloisa Klementich, President and CEO of Invest Atlanta. “In its second year, Students2Startups has opened the door to career opportunities for more than 34 students while further strengthening Atlanta’s robust tech talent pipeline. I hope that other cities around the world can look at what we’ve done here and replicate the success we’ve had subsidizing these high-quality entrepreneurial internships.”
