Atlanta runs on business. A total of 15 Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here as well as countless startups and an almost infinite number of other firms. It’s no wonder that the Southeast United States is seen as a highly lucrative region by U.S. and French companies alike. France-Atlanta 2018’s business events celebrate the strong financial and corporate ties that link the two countries.
