Atlantic City. The next big tech incubator town? We think so. In addition to the obvious tourism, gaming, education, health and aviation opportunities, AC has great infrastructure in place for hi-tech start-ups.
Shuttered Atlantic City casinos could become technology incubators; a place that nurture and assists start-ups and entrepreneurial endeavors.
From INSIDE JERSEY CITY:
Imagine Google, GE or American Express owning Revel and turning it into a Google Labs, GE Ventures or AmEx Ventures for new innovation to sprout and blossom. Entrepreneurs could live and work in the casinos with all the hotel rooms as housing, restaurants that could become cafeterias, auditoriums for product pitches and presentations, gambling floors converted in co-working spaces and a view that’ll make Silicon Valley jealous.
Atlantic City could be the ultimate playground for innovation–a dream city for someone like Elon Musk.
NOTE > Elon Reeve Musk is a South African-born Canadian-American business magnate, engineer, inventor and investor. He is the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors, and chairman of SolarCity. Co-Founder of Paypal.
Sure, NJ doesn’t have the all-year-round weather of CA, but that’ll only create more ideas for fun & amusement for coastal cities in the winter months.
What AC does have is an ocean and beaches, a bay and boating, fishing and surfing, kiteboarding and crabbing and an opportunity that could change the a city that’s asking for a new identity.
This article is an invitation to Google, GE, American Express, Elon Musk, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Cisco, SAP…the list can go on.
Take a leap and make a splash. Atlantic City is opportunity.
