For example, Atlanta made it into the top five metro areas for entrepreneurship growth in a recent report by the Kauffman Foundation. Atlanta was also among the metro areas that saw the biggest improvement in where they ranked on such growth in this year’s report as compared to the one from the previous year.

In a different list, this one by the U.S Chamber of Commerce, Atlanta was ranked among the hottest U.S. cities for tech startups. While it didn’t make the top five in this list, it did make the top 10. Specifically, it was given a rank of No. 6. This report also named Atlanta the “most improved” city when it comes to tech startup matters.
