On Tuesday, dignitaries, real estate investors and supporters of downtown Atlanta revitalization gathered for the official opening of the Microsoft Innovation Center (MIC) and debut at the new FlatironCity building. It is only the second U.S. based MIC and joins in the building a pet project of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the Women’s Entrepreneur Initiative.

According to a statement from Microsoft, the MIC is a result of the CityNext Digital Alliance between Microsoft and the City of Atlanta. “The alliance focuses on increasing access to Microsoft software and technology support for citizens — with an emphasis on K–20 education, student entrepreneurs, software startups and job seekers. It supports the local economy through increased digital literacy, career readiness and services for accelerating innovation.”
