InBloom, a technology based, nonprofit company that is backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has selected a location in Buckhead as its new headquarters. The new office is located in Piedmont Center on Piedmont Road.
According to the company’s website:
inBloom is dedicated to bringing together the data, content and tools educators need to make personalized learning a reality for every student. To achieve this vision, inBloom:
- Offers states and districts a secure technology infrastructure to integrate data, services and applications that work together to support personalized learning.
- Partners with education technology companies, content providers and developers to support the creation of products compatible with this infrastructure.
- Works with states and districts to help them use this infrastructure to support educators and students.
As I looked into who this company was (I saw the announcement in the Atlanta Business Chronicle) I found a pretty cool video on their site about some of their technology. Nothing like when I went to school!
For those who may be interested, the company website also lists several job openings.
The Buckhead location is in a somewhat spread-out office campus, and is not close to the Buckhead MARTA station for those employees that might want to use mass transit. However, it’s an easy car ride from Midtown Atlanta and its living and entertainment options for anyone that is relocating to Atlanta to join InBloom.
