A Partnership for Progress in Atlanta

Working shoulder to shoulder with the Mayor of Atlanta, the ACP seeks solutions to critical issues facing our city. Our coalition of business, university, and philanthropic leaders identifies and leverages leadership to jump-start transformational initiatives and then spins them off to operate independently.

The ACP supports Mayor Reed’s efforts to provide entrepreneurs with capital and talent to fuel the start-up community.

Upgrading City Infrastructure

The ACP offers private sector advice on best practices for road, building, and technology infrastructure to keep Atlanta competitive in the 21st century.

Westside Future Fund

The ACP backs coordinated efforts to revitalize the historic Westside neighborhoods and improve the lives of the area’s existing and future residents.
