Booth 61 hit an academic milestone on 8/14 with Dr. Eloisa Klementich. Dr. Klementich has three MBA’s and a PhD. I have not had the opportunity to be around that kind of “Book Learning” too often in the past. It was quite refreshing and my personal IQ must have doubled during our time together through osmosis. The best part is that although it was very obvious that Dr. Klementich is brilliant, she was very down to earth and great fun being with during the show. I predict you will be hearing her name many times in the future.
Dr. Klementich is the Managing Director at Invest Atlanta which is the economic development arm of the City of Atlanta. As a native of Atlanta and a great lover of all things Atlanta, I was excited to hear about all of the forward thinking initiatives the City is doing to promote economic growth. The most exciting part was what the City is doing to help the start up business community.
Invest Atlanta is going to be publishing a blog geared to the Start Up Community beginning Monday, August 19th. To celebrate the launch, Invest Atlanta is hosting an event on Wednesday, August 21st at Atlantic Station. The panel includes three Atlanta technology legends, Reggie Bradford, Charles Brewer, and Sig Mosley. The moderator is Atlanta Technology King, John Yates. You must register to attend.
I am quite proud of this show and of all the innovative programs my hometown is doing to insure growth for Atlanta’s future.
