A PROSPEROUS CITY IS ONE THAT IS ECONOMICALLY VIBRANT. When I look around the City of Atlanta today, I see a city buzzing with activity, excitement and unlimited opportunities. I see a city with the best business climate since the Great Recession. I see a city where anyone can bring and build their dreams. Atlanta’s fiscal strength, high quality of life at an affordable cost and dynamic and highly-educated workforce make our city attractive to new businesses and explain why so many Fortune 500 companies, industry leaders and entrepreneurs call us home. In 2015 alone, we celebrated 13 companies either moving their headquarters to Atlanta or making significant corporate expansions in the city. For our city, the pathway to prosperity includes more than just being financially sound. We aim to provide opportunities every day for our residents to live, work and play in a prosperous environment and for our businesses to succeed. Invest Atlanta has been instrumental in spearheading a robust and diverse set of programs, policies and activities which support increased private investment and job growth, improve the quality of life for those who choose to make Atlanta their home and ensure that our businesses have the resources to thrive.
