In February, Ripple announced that we are the Official IT Partner of the ATV. Today, I’m excited to say we’re going to be a tenant at Atlanta Tech Village as well, starting on May 1st.

There are a lot of reasons to want to be in the ATV, and nearly all of them apply to Ripple. A great community of companies, flexible lease arrangements, great building, Chipotle across the street. But one reason really stood out to me, and it’s the reason we’re leaving our awesome digs on Means St.

The power of peers.

The power of peers is why going to college instead of watching college on iTunes is much more meaningful. It seemed nuts to deny Ripplers the workplace equivalent of an awesome university environment. So we’re packing up and heading to Buckhead for immersion courses in asskicking with the best startups in Atlanta.

Can’t wait.
