5 Reasons Why You Should Become an Atlanta Tech Park Member This Summer

By The Park

It’s officially summer! While there aren’t many things better than a beach vacation, we all know that a return to work is inevitable. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing, however! Here are five reasons why you should become an Atlanta Tech Park member today, so you have something to look forward to tomorrow… or whenever you get back from vacation.

1. The Savings! For a limited time only, Atlanta Tech Park is offering a summer special where you can get $50 off any membership package for 12 months! While our rates are already competitive, this offer enables you to grow your business even faster with a lower overhead cost than the competition.

2. Premium amenities Within our 45,000+ sq. ft. of office space we have lifting desks, open seating, reserved seating, private offices, multiple boardrooms and conference rooms, a 300-person event space that can be used for your product launch party, and a podcast studio. We also offer mail services and phone lines should your company need those. Some things cost a little extra, but all of them are less than the $50/month you will be saving when you sign up for our summer special using the code SUMMER50 at checkout.

3. Free parking One of the benefits about being located in metro Atlanta (Gwinnett County, to be specific) is the free parking that’s always available to our members and their guests! When hosting a meeting at The Park, there is no need to worry about finding or having enough parking available for all of your guests.

4. Global Innovation Center Atlanta Tech Park’s motto is “local imprint, global footprint.” Our Founder, Robin Bienfait, has experience successfully conducting business in multiple countries and shares her insights with our members once a month. She has helped companies establish patents, fill leadership roles, increase their bottom line, and operate more efficiently. Your company can be next. All you have to do is sign up now!

5. Location, location, location! Atlanta Tech Park is located in Peachtree Corners, GA, which is a simple 25-minute drive to and from Atlanta. Peachtree Corners is also home to the first live autonomous vehicle test track in the United States. The project runs on a 5G signal powered by Sprint, and all of it is literally right outside of Atlanta Tech Park. If your company is serious about making waves in the rapidly changing world of technology, then you need to be at Atlanta Tech Park now.

OneLogin Opens Southeast Headquarters at Atlanta Tech Park in Peachtree Corners

By Latest News, The Park

In Q3 of 2018, OneLogin, a Unified Access Management solution for cloud-based companies, chose to open its Southeast office at Atlanta Tech Park.

(If OneLogin sounds familiar, it may be because the company recently secured a $100 million investment in January of this year.)

The OneLogin offices at ATP were originally a corner suite that consisted of one main office and three smaller offices with six employees. Since their arrival in late 2018, OneLogin has expanded its operation to onboard five more employees and build out its suite to include two more offices and a common area for its team—all within a glass wall with premium branding.

When asked why OneLogin why they chose Atlanta Tech Park as the location for their Southeast office, here’s what their VP of Sales, Drew Prante, had to say:

“The location made sense. We have people from as far out as Cumming and Woodstock while others are in Buckhead and Midtown. In Atlanta, it’s hard to find a central location, and Peachtree Corners allowed us to do that. The facility and conversations we had with Robin and Nashlee while we were looking for a space also factored into us to choosing Atlanta Tech Park.”

From the operations side, having OneLogin at Atlanta Tech Park has been great! Their office buildout served as a catalyst for some of our other companies to expand their own operations, whether it was moving from the open desk space area to a private office or—in the case of Critical Edge Tech—building out a glass wall and private suite of their own.

Thank you, Netflix

By Latest News, The Park

We’ve had a great year of firsts here at Atlanta Tech Park in 2018.

Whether it was hosting our first-ever hackathon, the inaugural North Atlanta Tech Showcase, or multiple comedy shows, there have been some truly memorable moments at The Park in our first year.

One of the most unique and exciting moments for us, however, was when Netflix stopped by to shoot the movie Sextuplets starring Marlon Wayans and Molly Shannon.

We’ve been sworn to secrecy to keep details of the plot under wraps, so all we can say is that the movie is due out (pun intended) sometime in 2019. While we can’t share much about the movie itself, we are excited to show everyone the design changes that Netflix made during their week-long stay at The Park.

The most notable change that the crew­, which was all full of wonderful people, made was adding a literal splash of color to our wall in the event space. Whereas we had a blank white wall before, we now have an orange wave running from end to end. On the left side of the screen, the lines are neat and orderly, but on the right side, they become more fluid, pronounced, and bold.

Of course, you’ll also notice our logo prominently displayed near the entrance to the auditorium now as well! Netflix actually added our logo to two other walls in the facility.  One of them is in the Create Conference Room. After seeing how much the logo brightened up Create, we opted to replace the original whiteboard on the wall with a transparent dry-erase board so that the logo could still be seen. We think it’s a hit! The third logo is on the wall outside of the Oasis Conference and Board Room, which was used for a small but important scene.

Another major addition—and arguably the most exciting—Netflix made to Atlanta Tech Park came in the form of an authentic, orange ping pong table. Extras only used the prop during a scene, but our members and guests have made great use of it.  As a matter of fact, the ping pong table has become so popular that we’re actually having a ping-pong tournament at our members-only holiday luncheon on Wednesday, December 19th.

Lastly, Netflix added one last strip of vinyl paint to the wall above the interior offices in the front right of the building. The color serves as a reminder of the great week we shared with Netflix and of the energy that pulses through Atlanta Tech Park every single day.

So, while you’re waiting for the movie to be released on Netflix, come on down to Atlanta Tech Park and check out the new additions to our facility yourself! We guarantee you will leave feeling productive, inspired, productive, and literally like you just stepped out of a movie set because you will have!

Inaugural North Atlanta Tech Showcase at ATP a huge success

By Latest News, The Park

Atlanta Tech Park was proud to host the inaugural North Atlanta Tech Showcase last week on November 1st, 2018.

The event featured 20+ exhibitors showcasing their technologies to investors, influencers, and tech talent. In addition to the showcase, we had a thrilling panel discussion on the future of North Atlanta’s tech ecosystem, a keynote address, and a startup pitch competition with a prize for the first and second place.

Richard Cope, the CEO of Peachtree Corners-based NanoLumens, delivered a hugely insightful keynote address.

In it, he shared two books everyone should read to learn more about entrepreneurship and five keys to success.

His five keys to success are as follows:

  • Have a service or product that somebody else is willing to pay for.
    1. Entrepreneurs find the void and create the demand.
  • Pivot
    1. Simple changes can yield profound results.
  • Fog of war
    1. Uncertainties along the way are part of the battle.
  • Failure
    1. It happens whether you want it to or not. Then what?
  • A purpose larger than yourself
    1. What good is a product, service, or feeling if you don’t have anyone to share it with?

https://twitter.com/PartnershipGw/status/1058086984252616704

The three books Mr. Cope recommended to everyone were:

  • The Wealth of Nations
  • Victory of Reason

Prior to keynote was a stellar panel discussion on the Trends, Opportunities, and Challenges of Tech Innovations in North Atlanta.

The four panelists were founders of four tech accelerators in Fulton and Gwinnett counties, including our Founder herself, Robin Bienfait.

Of course, we couldn’t send people home from the first-ever North Atlanta Tech Show without a pitch competition! There were eight presentations up to three minutes each.

In the end, however, only two companies would win the prizes—each package including a small residency at The Park.

Many congratulations to the 1st place winners Aaron Gobin and Bruce Rasa from AgVoice and the 2nd place winner Molly Proffitt from Ker-Chunk Games.

Lastly, on Monday, Atlanta Tech Park hand-selected a handful of winners from our free membership giveaway! These lucky folks put their business cards in our fishbowl for a chance to win a free membership and didn’t need to spend any money on a Powerball ticket in order to do so.

Interested in becoming a member but didn’t win a membership or have a startup to pitch?

You can still sign up using our holiday special, which nets you three months of membership for half off! Learn more here at holiday.107atp.com now.

 

 

Atlanta Tech Park thanks the Atlanta Small Business networking for being at NATS and covering all aspects of the event.
