Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is a place where nearly 100 million people come together each year. As a leader in air transportation and logistics, ATL is in a unique position to be a global model for international innovation.

From December 11 thru 15, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will be an incubator for innovation as it presents the inaugural Logistics and Transportation “Ideation Launch”. Sponsored by Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta Aerotropolis Alliance, Atlanta Regional Commission and the Atlanta community.

Ideation Launches are a venue for businesses to share their aspirations for the future of their industry. This is about solving real world problems by bringing some of our region’s best and brightest talent together at one of our greatest spaces – Hartsfield-Jackson. The intent is to mentor these talented people and teams/startups toward building viable products for their industries, the ultimate goal is to launch new businesses that further define Atlanta as an innovation leader.

For the startups, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs (individuals within a large company who integrate risk-taking and innovative practices), this provides a unique opportunity to work with, and be mentored by industry experts on real world problems and opportunities that will drive the next generation businesses.

The focus for the Ideation Launch will be on the following areas:

+ The business of airports – from freight/cargo logistics to passenger travel to defining the entire, immersive Airport experience 25-50 years out

+ Transportation-related issues in both the automotive and airline industries

+ Supply Chain Logistics and Distribution

+ Advanced Manufacturing, Land use and planning opportunities for the Atlanta Aerotropolis area
