Consul General Anat Sultan-Dadon and Deputy Consul General Alex Gandler visit the Curiosity Lab in Peachtree Corners, Georgia – at the heart of Silicon Orchard.

Peachtree Corners and Curiosity Lab welcome companies from all around the world who want to test their smart city, intelligent mobility and 5G technology solutions in a real-world environment.

A recent visit to Peachtree Corners by Anat Sultan-Dadon, Consul General of Israel to the southeastern United States, demonstrated the Lab’s international appeal. The Israeli Consulate, located in Atlanta, has worked closely with Peachtree Corners and Curiosity Lab to provide a launching pad for Israeli tech and mobility firms to expand into the United States and across North America.

Israel was the first country outside the U.S. to focus attention on our leading smart city. France, Taiwan, Canada, Mexico followed closely thereafter, with more regions flocking to the technology hotspot.

“I was thoroughly impressed with my visit to Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners. It’s no surprise that some of the brightest Israeli technology developers and startups have been gravitating to Peachtree Corners at the heart of what’s being called ‘Silicon Orchard’ – where opportunities to collaborate with some of the world’s most prominent telecommunications, mobility and overall technology companies are unmatched,” said Anat Sultan-Dadon, Consul General of Israel to the southeast.

“The ‘city street of the future’ is a real thing here, where companies are able to prove out emerging solutions with smart infrastructure owned by the local government – giving them an edge in terms of deploying and scaling those solutions in a way that is not possible in closed test environments.”

Peachtree Corners and Curiosity Lab have hosted numerous Israel-born technology startups – also helping to create critical new partnerships and opportunities to expand, said Brian Johnson, city manager of Peachtree Corners.

“For decades, Technology Park has been home to several international companies responsible for revolutionary technological developments with massive global impact,” he said. “I was glad to give Consul General Sultan-Dadon and Deputy Consul General Alex Gandler a first-hand look at the amazing work of our international companies.”

Below are some examples of emerging global technology leaders from the Middle East now testing their solutions in the Silicon Orchard:

  • IPgallery – International technology innovator and developer of integrated, artificial intelligence-based smart city/IoT management systems.
  • Brodmann17 – Leading developer of state-of-the-art Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology.
  • Cynamics – Developers of a scalable, cost-effective network visibility/cybersecurity solution that detects threats on smart networks as they emerge.
  • Cyber 2.0 – Innovators of new, revolutionary and game-changing technology designed to stop the spread of all known and previously unknown cyberattacks, including viruses, ransomware, browser hijacking and more.
  • Cawamo – Developers of revolutionary artificial intelligence-powered camera technology aimed at assisting local authorities to increase public safety and enforce public ordinance by monitoring movement using existing equipment.
