The Atlanta startup community has really come into its own in the past three years. When I moved my company to Atlanta in the summer of 2002, I must admit that I was disappointed in the lack of activity in the metro area. There were a handful of events but it didn’t feel like a community. The advent of social media and passionate technology entrepreneurs really helped coalesce the community and make it a vibrant place.
We have so many events and organizations I’m bound to forget a few (please add them in the comments!), but here goes with a starting point:
- Shotput Ventures
- Technology Executive Roundtable
- Technology Association of Georgia
- CEO Council
- Atlanta Technology Angels
- Young Entrepreneurs Society
- Startup Riot
- Startup Drinks
- Open Coffee

The technology community is an advantage for Atlanta startups.
