Atlanta is a booming city for cybersecurity and machine learning companies. For security, there have been quite a few exits over the years (the two most known are ISS - IBM, $1.3B/2006 Airwatch - VMWare, $1.4B/2014). Georgia Tech also has a booming machine learning community with over 30 faculty members with deep expertise in this area (note our office is located next to Georgia Tech).
Atlanta is also very affordable to start a company. Real estate and the cost of living is inexpensive relative to most major cities without compromising infrastructure of networks. Your money will go further in our accelerator.
