The Atlas is an online community of city officials modernizing the $1.6T local government market…without ever selling to cities.
Meet The Atlas
Why is your company the best option to solve the problem you're solving?
City officials hate getting sold things. Instead, they rely on recommendations from other cities to decide what to buy and build. Meanwhile companies are bombarding city officials with drip emails that don’t get read and sending huge sales teams to conferences just to get ignored on expo floors. The future of our cities shouldn’t be left up to getting lucky at a conference. That is why we built The Atlas, an online community that cities use to figure out what to buy and build.
What nuggets of info make you interesting? Why do people care about what you're doing?
Cities spend $1.6 trillion of your taxpayer dollars on software, technology and services each year! In less than 1 year we’ve hosted over 15,000 local government officials from more than 2,000 cities worldwide.
What else do you want us to know?
The Atlas was founded by 2 women under 35, both of whom are military spouses (USMC) and former government officials!
