News regarding The Park and all of the activities going on in Peachtree Corners

It’s All About the Members

By Latest News, Member Spotlight

Seriously! What does make us different?

When talking with members of The Park, one thing is repeated over and over again - "There is no other place like this anywhere!"

Maybe it’s the state of the art facility.  Members have access to conference rooms equipped the latest in technology. From wireless screen connections to digital displays and everything in between, if you need it we have it.

Our online scheduling capabilities enable you to book the room you want when you want. Never worry about double bookings.

Perhaps it is our community events.  From monthly lunch and learns to our wildly popular Wine Wednesdays, we have something going on for our members.  We work to give them the knowledge they need to accelerate their businesses, grow their networks and improve visibility in the community at large.

Some say the perks are where it’s at.  How about free snacks, coffee, and fountain drinks in a cafe with cable TV.  On-site services from dry cleaning pick up/drop off and secured document shredding to color printing and mail service, we have thought of every detail to make life easier and more enjoyable at The Park.

Without a doubt though, it is the people.  The staff at The Park is second to none always there to help.  It makes our members feel like they have a huge team and are ready to take on the world!  We take pride in curating a special environment.

If you haven’t come by to see for yourself what makes us different, why not schedule a tour today.

Tech Accelerator – Why it’s Different at The Park

Tech Accelerator, Conference Rooms

Tech Accelerator – it feels like the latest buzzword.

It sounds really cool. Yet, what does it mean?  According to RocketSpace, “Accelerator programs are a tool for rapid-growth companies.”

Inc.com’s Fernando Sepulveda also defines the accelerator model as “a holistic business advisory service.”

A primary function of accelerators is connecting startups with mentors, guidance, resources, and funding. Since accelerators’ members already have a minimum viable product (MVP) their resources are often focused on:

  • operations and strategy
  • management coaching
  • branding.

And this is where The Park is different.

Tech accelerator programs out there are a short-term program that last from 3 to 6 months.  They are a set format that companies enter into.  As a result, they may require an equity stake in the companies that participate in their tech accelerator program.

The vision of Atlanta Tech Park is to focus on that business advisory service, providing the much need connections, resources, and guidance without asking for equity in return. Additionally, The Park can connect you with VC funding, but we are also big on bootstrapping. We understand that your business may not fit into a typical tech accelerator program.   As a result, we develop a customized acceleration plan based on your needs.  Take part in training sessions with our partners, such as Nine Labs.  Perhaps you would like to schedule one on one time with Robin Bienfait or one of her team from Emnovate.  Maybe you want to review your pitch.  Here at The Park, you can set the pace and prioritize based on your needs.

Join the Community

You don’t fit the mold and we don’t make you.  Timing is everything and you need to accelerate on your timeline, not ours.  Robin has put together a team to help you where you are at now.  She understands the importance of holding on to equity and how important timing can be in any situation. Networking, sales growth, financial plans, marketing – we are here to help.

Hence, when you are doing your research, remember that not all accelerators are created equal.  At Atlanta Tech Park, we are more than your facility, we are your community.

The Importance of a Human-Centered Business

J Cornelius, Founder and President of NineLabs hit it out of The Park with a terrific lunch and learn for our members and guests to kick off this monthly event.  Focusing on the Human-Centered business, attendees we treated to a discussion on the 5 phases a company must go through to understand their customers and how to provide products and services that satisfy them.

From problem validation through product design and development, guests were challenged to consider why they should care about making business human-centered.

“I think the lunch went very well,” commented Brian Thomas of Cyberdot. “The speaker was extremely knowledgeable and kept my attention the whole presentation. The information on how to get the right customers and how he broke it down was simple and effective. In addition, I thought the food was very well done, healthy and tasty.”  He continued, “Having these types of events is such a fantastic perk, it provides a startup company like ours the ability to learn from our peers. ”

“Organizing these types of events for our members is one of the many things that separates The Park from other co-working spaces,” Robin Bienfait remarked. “We are creating something very special and unique in Peachtree Corners.”
