More than 600 people gathered at the Georgia Cyber Center on Thursday for the opening of the $100 million facility‘s new building. The 165,000-square-foot Shaffer MacCartney Building joined the Hull McKnight Building that opened last July, and will serve primarily as office spaces and an incubator for upstart cybersecurity firms.
The center’s spokesman, Todd Gay, told the crowd the facility is cutting-edge.
“It’s going to have everything from pitch space to pitch new innovative ideas,” Gay said, a local ABC affiliate reported. “You’re also going to have maker space that’s on the other end of the building with 3D printing and laser cutting to come up with different prototypes or ideas. Then you can take that idea and pitch it in the pitch space.”
