Startups are hard. We see that firsthand every day, which is why our community encourages a work/life blend and why we have a core value of Work Hard, Play Hard. So sometimes, we like to remind our Village entrepreneurs just how awesome, innovative, and brave they are. We like to thank them for taking the plunge into being an entrepreneur. We like to thank them for choosing the Village. And just to show we mean it, we throw our huge Atlanta Tech Village Block Party every year. That’s just how we roll.
So here is a sneak peak at some of the fun we had at our 3rd Annual Members Only Rooftop Atlanta Tech Village Block Party! It was pretty epic with hundreds of people, Village swag, free drinks, food, a photo booth, and a DJ. And what’s a good rooftop party without our annual Top Ten list? So without further ado, here it is. (And yes, some of these are inside jokes. You have been warned.)
Top 10 Ways You Know You’re A Villager:
- When you have seen at least one person face plant into a glass wall.
- When Jewell knows the name of your 3rd cousin.
- When your nutritional pyramid includes Dasani Lime and a noodle cup.
- When you keep a parka in your office for mailroom visits… And yes, we have a mailroom.
- When you use the elevator as your full length mirror.
- When you walk up to a door and can’t remember if you should push or pull.
- When you find yourself pouring a cold beer, and then realize it’s only 10am.
- When someone asks you for your elevator pitch ON the elevator.
- When you see someone in a suit and you automatically question- “why are they here?”
- When you’ve seen one person walk out of the nap room, followed by another… followed by another.
So cheers to our amazing community and all your future successes! Thanks for a great night.
