Atlanta is FULL of people-- 5,710,795, to be exact! This means that we all have neighbors, whether they be above, below, and beside us in a condo or apartment; the next driveway over in a subdivision or neighborhood; or a couple of acres away in the country. But it is neighbors, turned friends, that make true community. Despite the fact that ATLiens value community, some neighborhoods could benefit tremendously from a stronger sense of community. Why? HomeAdvisor conducts the nation’s largest annual study on what makes homeowners happiest in their homes, and “community” is ranked the 2nd most important factor. Speaking from our experience at ATV, HomeAdvisor is absolutely correct! At Clickscape we strive to build community with our fourth-floor, ATV friends! Nine to be exact. They’re incredibly talented and passionate companies changing the tech and business landscape of Atlanta and beyond.

Get Engaged is a digital media company that develops digital and social media strategy and content. Working with big names in sports, music, and film, you could say these are good friends to have.
