In search of office space? Spring is graduation time for ATDC startups and several graduates are getting ready to move on – making room for newcomers in ATDC’s headquarters.
Provided by the startup incubator to house early-stage and seed-stage companies, the high-demand space is located in the Centergy One building in Atlanta’s Technology Square. A number of individually keyed offices and workstations are currently open to ATDC members.
“Although ATDC Select companies will get priority, any member can request space on the floor,” said Nina Sawczuk, ATDC’s General Manager and Georgia Tech’s Director of Startup Services. “This is also the case for our satellite campus in Savannah and the biosciences facility at the Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building.”
Last year, “resident” companies demonstrated significant growth, collectively raising more than $40 million in a 12-month timeframe. The available space ranges from an 8×8 cubicle to 2,300-square-feet offices, while monthly rent starts at $200 and increases in price based on the configuration. Leases are renewed quarterly, however ATDC companies have the opportunity to remain in the space for up to three years. Members looking for wet lab space can apply to the Ford building’s waiting list.
Among the many perks of utilizing ATDC space: strong networking opportunities, the use of third-floor conference rooms at Centergy One, discounted parking and 24-hour building access.
“Entrepreneurs renting this space will benefit from the close proximity to Georgia Tech, as well as frequent interaction with ATDC team members, mentors, potential investors and other startups who are experiencing similar challenges,” said Sawczuk.
