We are honored to count Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), with the European office in Munich, as our new SIBB Forum International Business sponsor.
GDEcD is the state’s sales and marketing arm, the lead agency for attracting new business investment, encouraging the expansion of existing industry and small businesses, aligning workforce education and training with in-demand jobs, locating new markets for Georgia products, attracting tourists to Georgia, and promoting the state as a destination for arts and location for film, music and digital entertainment projects, as well as planning and mobilizing state resources for economic development.
Because of the skilled workforce, lower cost of doing business (as compared to New York City or Silicon Valley), and broadband infrastructure, over 13,000 technology companies call Georgia home. With strengths in FinTech, CyberSecurity, Software, Digital Media, MedTech, and Mobility, Georgia’s tech ecosystem is one of the fastest growing in the US. Georgia’s colleges and universities offer a wide range of information technology courses, certificates, degrees and training programs, and can also custom deliver training directly to companies.
In 2020 Business Facilities Magazine ranked Atlanta as the Number One Tech Hub in the US and CBRE’s Scoring Tech Talent Report highly ranks Atlanta for labor quality and tech degrees.
Thank you GDEcD for joining our international community. We are looking forward to the fruitful cooperation and future activities fostering new strategic tech partnerships and business opportunities!
