Georgia joins Startup America Partnership – SouthernAlphaChalk up another one for Startup America . Today, at Startup Rally in Atlanta, which will feature more than 100 exhibiting companies, Startup Georgia will officially launch. Wasting no time in gathering momentum more than 350 entrepreneurs have already joined the statewide organization.
It was packed! We think there were about 800 people in attendance all said and done, and it was definitely shoulder-to-shoulder pretty much all day in the Biltmore Hotel’s beautiful ballroom.
