Infrastructure, logistics and workforce are key to any large brand’s success. With the United States’ fastest growing port, most extensive rail system in the Southeast, and world’s busiest passenger airport, Georgia knows how to get people and products moving. And with nearly 90 accredited universities, colleges and technical colleges produce 50,000-plus graduates a year companies can rely on the educational strength of the state. These are the kinds of business incentives that will surely bring new Georgia-based companies to Fortune’s Global 500 list.
