Today, I had the pleasure to work out of Atlanta’s hottest co-working space: Hypepotamus. The place is awesome. Housed in the basement of the historic Biltmore hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, it’s got the right vibe for creativity, productivity, and fun.
The only thing missing are more dedicated people building and selling cool stuff. This is a developer’s playground (ask Rob Kischuk). It’s located blocks away from the Klaus Computing building. Perfect. The big question is how do we inform students this gem is right next door to their classrooms?
One idea: hold an informative session showcasing something amazing the community has built. Show people it can be done and that people are doing it now. It could be a product, company, or game. Invite all the allstars like MattsTech and co to experience the place and its great vibe.
The Atlanta Startup Community has improved dramatically in the last 3 months since we left for TechStars Boulder and it’s only going to get better.
