Data Science Bootcamps in Atlanta, GA
It’s no exaggeration to say that Atlanta is booming. Between 2016 and 2017, the city experienced the third-highest increase in population in the United States, just behind Dallas and Houston. It’s the No. 1 filming location in the U.S. and third in the entire world. It’s also been heralded as one of the country’s next great tech hubs. Proof: Atlanta’s tech jobs have increased by nearly 47 percent since 2010—nearly 20 percent above the national average.
With a low cost of living, high quality of life, and supportive startup community, it should come as no surprise that entrepreneurs are choosing to set up shop in Atlanta. Key startup industries include cybersecurity, fintech, and marketing tech—all of which rely heavily on data science teams.
Atlanta has no shortage of local tech talent. Home to The Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, Agnes Scott College, Morehouse College, and The University of Georgia (located an hour outside of Atlanta), many grads decide to stay in the area, adding to the city’s impressive talent pool.
Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood is home to the Atlanta Tech Village, which was founded in 2012 with the goal of providing a support system to startups. It has since become the fourth-largest tech space in the U.S., has raised over $600 million in capital, and led to the creation of nearly 4,000 jobs. It has also helped launch more than 300 startups, including Calendly, Clickscape, and others. Mailchimp is another of the major startups headquartered in Atlanta, but it was founded pre-Atlanta Tech Village. The city isn’t just comprised of startups, of course: key mega-companies include Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Delta Airlines, and UPS.
