22TechPark is pleased to announce the Grand Re-Opening of our newly renovated technology incubator. 22TechPark offers technology entrepreneurs a place to create, develop, network, and flourish. The mission is to continue to be THE choice for technology entrepreneurs that are developing enterprise solutions which they hope to scale exponentially. This environment enables rapid innovation and development and serves start-ups from a pre-revenue stage to those who are raising money and growing fast. 22TechPark is looking for companies that are technology-driven with big ideas and unlimited opportunity. Ideal companies will take advantage of the power of Big Data, IoT, Cloud Computing and Mobility.
Relus Cloud, the anchor tenant at 22TechPark, is the leading AWS Cloud consulting company in Georgia with expertise in cloud migrations, DevOps and Big Data. They are helping create a center of gravity for startups wanting to innovate with these new disruptive technologies. Entrepreneurs already taking advantage of 22TechPark include companies in industries as varied as agriculture, retail, shipping, marketing, logistics and even beer.
For the last couple of months, 22TechPark was completely renovated to enhance innovation, creativity and productivity of current and future tenants. Because of the rapid growth of IT and IT startups in Atlanta, many small companies are looking for a place to work on a month-by-month basis and 22TechPark offers many perks that startups don’t want to miss out on. Incubator owner Mark Metz, who is also the CEO of 22TechPark’s largest tenant Relus Technologies, is thrilled with the outcome of the remodel.
“Over the past few months, we have gathered feedback from our entrepreneurs and have remodeled 22TechPark to make it the premier tech incubator outside the perimeter. Comcast, a key sponsor of 22TechPark has installed high-speed GB internet. Dekalb Office and Steelcase have supplied the latest collaborative furniture to give 22TechPark a new look, and Warren Hanks helped design and construct the new office environment. Come see for yourself!”
Join the 22TechPark tenants and friends at the Grand Re-Opening on September 29th from 5pm-7pm. There will be free food, Peachtree Growler Beer and a raffle prize! You will not want to miss this! For more info and registration, click here.
22TechPark Tenant, Jeff Libby, was on Atlanta TechEdge on 11 Alive this past Sunday to talk about what inspired Table Tap and what the products do. Table Tap is revolutionizing the beer industry with DIY Beer Pouring. Check out the full video and article on 11 Alive here!
Scott Miller and team RampedUp are among the newest to join the 22TechPark forces. What does RampedUp do, you ask? Well, as selling has become more competitive, so has the need to onboard new sales reps more effectively and efficiently. Companies have to minimize the time it takes to ramp up their sales force or face losing customers they may never win back.

What is MotivDeals Fundraising?
MotivDeals fundraising is the digital version of those plastic fundraising deal cards and booklets that organizations sell to local residents in order to raise money. The old way was to sell a physical deal card or booklet with deals on them, requiring the customer to physically keep the card on them in order to redeem. But now, MotivDeals introduces the sales of memberships to local residents that allows people to receive local deals through their smart phone.
Recently, MotivDeals Fundraising has developed a great partnership with LakePoint Sports!
What is LakePoint Sports?
LakePoint Sports is well on its way to becoming one of the world’s largest and most exceptional destinations for travel sports. With over 1,400 acres of land nestled near the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, LakePoint will offer state-of-the-art sports venues. With nearly five million square feet of special amenities including themed retail, onsite hotels, restaurants, ziplines, water parks and many more attractions, there’s sure to be enough fun for the entire family.
MotivDeals and LakePoint Collaborate
The LakePoint Deals Applications have successfully been accepted into the iOS & Android stores and are currently in beta testing. What next, you ask? MotivDeals and LakePoint plan to roll out their deal platform in early 2016. This platform will be 100% free for the millions of LakePoint guests each year, and the Atlanta businesses will have a great opportunity to partner with LakePoint to gain some premium advertisement space targeting out of town visitors!
This collaboration will also open the doors for MotivDeals and give exposure to millions of sports teams from across the country, allowing them too, to #FundraiseAnywhere!
Keep Up with Motivdeals
MotivDeals founder, Kyle Valencia, is a dynamic, high-energy leader who strives to excel in innovation specializing in marketing, sales, product, and management, and aims to amplify business development. Valencia was a key factor in all negotiations with LakePoint Deals.
