As we say farewell to 2016, it’s a great time to reflect on Invest Atlanta’s accomplishments.
We have had the privilege to facilitate $1.2 billion in investment, 7,472 direct jobs and 3,101 indirect / induced jobs. These efforts have generated a total economic impact of $3.07 billion within the City of Atlanta.
Numbers, however, only tell a piece of the story. The most exciting part of our efforts is told through the stories of people we’ve assisted—the unemployed worker who found a new, high-quality job, the entrepreneur who launched their new business, or the young family who purchased their very first home.
I just want to thank the Mayor, the Invest Atlanta board, everyone at the City of Atlanta, our many public and private partners, and the people who make these projects possible, the Invest Atlanta team. IA could not make such a positive impact on so many lives without your support and contributions.
We have achieved a lot this year to bring greater prosperity to more Atlantans, but our work isn’t over. I’m excited to see what 2017 will bring.
I am IA!
