For many years countless superstars in entertainment and Fortune 500 businesses were created in Atlanta.

Once known to the world as the "Motown of the South", captivating the airwaves from such music industry labels as Laface Records and So So Def Recordings, the City of Atlanta began to rise like a Phoenix! Atlanta was also known as "Hotlanta".
Some of the most beloved and influential sports superstars such as Hank Aaron (Atlanta Braves), Dominique Wilkins (Atlanta Hawks), Dale Murphy, (Atlanta Braves) and Deion Sanders (Atlanta Falcons), were the first to bring a special type flare to Atlanta, making many referred to the city as "Hotlanta". Ted Turner was hands down the Media Mogul who challenged the norm and created Turner Studios, which is a big reason why Atlanta began to be called ATLWOOD®. Turner single handedly took the city from a local situation to a worldwide global force through his Media, Sports and Film/Television empire (TBS, TNT, Turner Sports, CNN, Turner Field). The film industry emergence is mostly because of the amazing tax breaks for filming in the State of Georgia.
Some of the highest rated and most popular reality shows have been filmed in Atlanta and surrounding areas. Double Divas, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Married To Medicine, Big Rich Atlanta, Chrisley Knows Best, The New Atlanta, among others have proven that the world tunes in to what Atlanta has going on. As far as TV/Sitcoms, I think it is fair to say that Tyler Perry has that genre on lock (For Better or Worse, House of Payne, The Haves and The Have Nots, Meet The Browns, among others on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network.
Forbes Magazine recently posed the question "Is Atlanta Becoming A Hotbed For Startups", (http://www.forbes.com/sites/groupthink/2014/11/05/will-at...) so not only is Atlanta raking in billions in the entertainment industry, but also in the world of startups.
The Gaming Industry is another hidden treasure that boosts the Atlanta, Georgia economy, don't sleep on them, this industry rakes in billions of dollars every year and has an amazing following.
