Last year, the City of Peachtree Corners partnered with Georgia Tech’s Enterprise Innovation Institute to investigate the community’s readiness for an incubator program, and what they found was hundreds of excited, eager entrepreneurs, business owners, investors, community leaders, and citizens.
In response to this demand, the City of Peachtree Corners is excited to announce a continuing partnership with Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) which will bring nationally-recognized education and resources for the city’s startups.
The development of the Peachtree Corners Incubator (name to be unveiled at the event) will not only help support early startups but also encourage those entrepreneurs to stay in the same community, creating jobs and increasing local sales revenue.
You are invited to get a sneak peek of the plans for the new incubator on Wednesday, May 25 at 5:45 p.m. Global Aviation, located at 120 Technology Parkway, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092, is hosting the event.
The new incubator will be located in space directly below City Hall; renovations are expected to be complete in July. Reservations for the Sneak Peek at Global Aviation are required, register today to attend.
The incubator will provide space that promises to provide access to education, tools, venture capitalists and more to help entrepreneurs launch and scale their startups.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to get a first-hand look at the new incubator,” said Mayor Mike Mason. “I invite everyone interested in learning more about this exciting project to attend this event.”
Since the 1970s Technology Park has been a hub for innovators and technology leaders. The new incubator will ensure that the tradition continues.

Parekh anticipates some entrepreneurs will stay from weeks to months to even a few years until they are ready to move on with their growing companies.
“Our hope is that we don’t have companies that stay here for a long time,” he says. “We want them to succeed and then move on out from here.”
