ABOUT GEORGIA’S INNOVATION CRESCENT
Georgia’s Innovation Crescent is both a geographic area and a coalition of more than 15 counties and economic development entities all dedicated to supporting innovation.
Anchored by the world’s most traveled and most efficient airport, with Atlanta on one end and the University of Georgia in Athens-Clarke County on the other, Georgia’s Innovation Crescent has quietly emerged as one of the leading innovation clusters in the nation. It boasts top research organizations such as the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia and Georgia State University; teaching institutions including Emory University and Morehouse School of Medicine, government entities and non-profits like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Cancer Society, and Institute for Healthcare Information Technology, plus more than 16,000 life science and technology companies, large and small.
The Innovation Crescent encompasses all of these rich resources and more, offering a robust and dynamic workforce, diverse entrepreneurial and innovation opportunities, a strong base of public and private support, and a lifestyle that ranges from urban to suburban and beyond.
