Mentor - Cities: Kate Atwood (ChooseATL)


Kate Atwood


Kate Atwood is the Executive Director of ChooseATL, a public-facing initiative launched by the Metro Atlanta Chamber in 2015 to attract and retain the emerging millennial talent needed to maintain Atlanta’s position as a top-tier globally competitive metro area. She works alongside local artists and creators, brands and entrepreneurs to celebrate Atlanta’s unique community, inclusive culture, and expanding business opportunities to connect the next generation to the city, ultimately enhancing the decision to call Atlanta home.

Meet Kate if you want to know more about talent and business opportunities in Atlanta, the new city-run video streaming platform THEA, and creative consumer storytelling. Also interested in meeting up with technology companies and brands with ties to--or considering ties to--Georgia, OTT brands and video streaming networks, filmmakers, and brands interested in working with Atlanta creators.
