We are going to nominate talent as the word of the year in 2014 at Four Athens. Much of the year, and our time, was spent connecting entrepreneurs with skilled individuals, identifying gaps in the talent pool, and helping to train the next generation of developers, entrepreneurs, and skilled service providers. By the numbers, we added 53 new members, our member companies hired over 70 people (through end of Q32014), and we worked with 5 companies that received funding this year.
Technology is changing the way we live. From automating massive numbers of jobs, to making basic tasks easier, to allowing us to communicate more efficiently, technology has fundamentally altered the way we live. Part of our mission at Four Athens is to help educate the community on the power and benefit of technology.
In 2013, one of our big projects at Four Athens is a member's only networking platform that will allow for private discussions, announcements, group beta testing and feedback, an area for freelancers to find local work and an area for employers and founders to search for talent and partners. And much more!
