Known throughout the country as the Technology City of the South, Alpharetta provides the perfect blend of business and lifestyle. Over the years, Alpharetta has become a magnet for tech professionals looking to grow their career and raise a family. It boasts excellent schools, safety, recreation and no shortage of things to do. In addition, city leadership has been very intentional about keeping the delicate balance of work/live/play/visit. Alpharetta is a great place for tech to “grow up” – a tech hub that has retained its Southern charm. The talent base in Alpharetta is filled with seasoned professionals with proven work experience that meets the needs for technology businesses. 

“Alpharetta was a no brainer for us,” said Julie Haley, CEO of Edge Solutions. “It has so many technology workers per capita and it attracts the biggest and best technology companies in the country. There’s also a robust start up community. We partner, collaborate and solve problems together – it’s a great place for opportunity. We have everything we need right here in our own backyard to grow exponentially.”

City of Alpharetta Mayor Jim Gilvin stated: “Alpharetta is a remarkable city for business and for people. We realize that government doesn’t do innovation well. We can’t sustain growth without strong private sector participation. Government’s role is to provide a framework of where we want to be in the future and support the business climate that will allow the private sector to invest to help achieve that vision.”
