Georgia’s Innovation Crescent is both a geographic area and a coalition of more than 15 counties and economic development entities all dedicated to supporting Georgia’s life science and technology growth.
Anchored by the world’s busiest and most efficient airport, with Atlanta on one end and the University of Georgia in Athens-Clarke County on the other, Georgia’s Innovation Crescent has quietly emerged as one of the leading life science and technology clusters in the Southeast. It boasts top research organizations such as the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia and Georgia State University; teaching institutions including Emory University and Morehouse School of Medicine, government entities and non-profits like the Centers for Disease Control, American Cancer Society, and Institute for Healthcare Information Technology, plus a wide range of life science and technology companies, large and small.
The Innovation Crescent encompasses all of these rich resources and more, offering a dynamic workforce, diverse entrepreneurial and innovation opportunities, a strong base of public and private support, and a lifestyle that ranges from urban to suburban and beyond.
