Entertainment will begin at 7 p.m. Mayor Kasim Reed will be on-hand with Arun Nijhawan, managing principal, Lucror Resources and V-103’s Ryan Cameron.
In a continued effort to revitalize Downtown, the 120-year-old building which is, in fact, the nation’s first flatiron building — predating the flatiron building in New York City, will be on full display. Atlanta’s oldest standing skyscraper, ‘FlatironCity’ is a melting pot for entrepreneurs and corporations. The refurbished office building houses a diverse tenant base including WEI an incubator for women founded companies and B2B start-ups who are increasing economic productivity in the airlines, logistics, chemical/refinery, digital advertising and music industries.
