According to a recent study, the Atlanta market ranks 14th amongst the top 20 most active markets for tech industry job growth. Employment in the technology sector grew 15% between 2010 and 2011, and another 11% between 2011 and 2013. Venture capital investment in Atlanta has almost doubled since this time last year; last year, companies secured $262.8 million in venture capital and this year they have secured almost $411.8 million. Atlanta’s mix of market receptiveness, low cost of living and doing business, availability of tech talent, and high quality of life seems to be the perfect combination for growing tech firms. Cities leading the high-tech job growth are Austin and Salt Lake City, which have grown 34.2% and 15.7% respectively since 2011.
