Peachtree Corners’ startup incubator officially opens

Prototype Prime, Peachtree Corners’ startup incubator, marked its official opening Oct. 27. Over 60 invited guests attended and toured the new facilities located in renovated office space directly below City Hall at 147 Technology Parkway.

The 12,500 square-foot area provides networking and event space, workshops, podcast room and a design lab with three 3D printers. In addition, two law firms and an accounting agency will provide professional services to budding entrepreneurs to assist their early startup efforts.

To help launch the new incubator, Peachtree Corners teamed up with Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center to provide mentorship, training and guidance to new business owners in their early-stage efforts and also assist them in acquiring the skills to build their companies.

Sanjay Parekh, who has started a number of successful companies, is heading up the incubator as its executive consultant.

The main goal of the incubator is to produce successful firms which have the potential to create jobs and strengthen the local economy.
