Atlanta offers unparalleled opportunity, and warmth, for Fargo-based mobile software development company
What does a young, growing mobile technology company based in Fargo, ND, do when they’ve experienced the coldest winter in 30 years? They open an office in Atlanta. After rapid success in Minneapolis, MN, and Fargo, ND, Myriad Mobile is taking off their parkas and setting up shop in sunny Atlanta. The much anticipated expansion allows Myriad to be a physical presence in a market that is home to the nation’s third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies. One of Myriad’s biggest clients, Doosan, is headquartered in Atlanta.
“Atlanta was an obvious market for us to explore,” said Myriad Mobile CEO Jake Joraanstad. “The formation of the Atlanta Tech Village, Flashpoint, Hypepotamus, and other entrepreneurial organizations shows the commitment Atlanta has to the technology community. We know that in order for good things to happen, we need to surround ourselves with good people and good ideas. Atlanta has that in droves.”
Myriad has immediate plans to get involved in Atlanta’s technology and entrepreneurial communities, with one partnership already in place. AirWatch, a mobile security and enterprise mobility management provider with global headquarters in Atlanta, will attend the 2014 Midwest Mobile Summit in Fargo, ND, on May 5 and 6. Kevin Kiley, Director of Enterprise Solutions at Airwatch, will be speaking at the Summit.
Ryan Raguse, Myriad Mobile’s President and Chairman, looks forward to doing business in Atlanta. “Myriad has been able to grow and generate success because we live, breathe and put all of our energy into mobile technology development. It’s our duty as mobile technology advocates to create conversations around mobile. We look forward to generating that buzz in Atlanta,” said Raguse. “And putting away our parkas,” he joked.
Myriad is working with the Metro Atlanta Chamber to get connected with the Atlanta business community. “Metro Atlanta is driving the regions’ mobile innovation, and so Myriad Mobile is a perfect fit to our thriving mobile community,” said Gregg Simon, Director of Technology for the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “MAC, along with our partners, will work to quickly connect Myriad into our technology ecosystem, and show them all of the great activities you can do year round in Atlanta without a parka.”
Business development executive, Thomas Winston, will head the Atlanta expansion, with Myriad Mobile moving forward with plans to add several more positions in the Atlanta area.
