Our city has long been known as a hub of creativity – music, art, food, film, & theatre. We are also the home of the University of Georgia, college football, and a downtown renowned for its vibrant night life. Unfortunately, not many people can tell you about all of the amazing companies that have been built in Athens that provide jobs, stability, and a growing local economy.
We can do better. And, in the process, make Athens better. The individuals who have chosen to make Athens home have created vibrant, innovative, and game-changing companies that provide thousands of jobs for citizens, stimulate the local, regional, and national economy, and provide the underpinnings of what makes Athens great.
We need your help. Please put this logo on your website, posters, marketing material, and products!Download
