The grand opening celebration of our new headquarters in Atlanta was a fantastic experience. The BitPay staff was joined by industry colleagues, media and other invited guests to a delicious meal and a fantastic reception to celebrate our new 8000 square foot office space in Buckhead.
Today all of us at BitPay are celebrating our new home!
After one amazing year of growth at Atlanta Tech Village, BitPay's new office space is right next door at 3405 Piedmont Rd. NE in Buckhead. The new office has multiple large screen TVs, a full kitchen, fiber internet, three dedicated huddle rooms as well as a room customized for video recording. BitPay's larger increased presence in the Atlanta business community is supplemented with offices in San Francisco and New York City as well as our European headquarters in Amsterdam and South American headquarters in Argentina.
Our office now holds the 40+ member team and will be sufficient to fit our goal of 100 employees by the end of this year. As the first startup to grow out of Atlanta Tech Village, it's a thrill to move to the next level of our expansion and into a new phase.
The BitPay team went to the Atlanta Braves game on Monday, May 20th (we won!) to celebrate the move as well as our recent announcement of $30 million in funding. On Tuesday, May 21st we had our official grand opening party with employees, investors as well as media members.
At the end of the evening's festivities the amazing people at Elev8 Staffing gave the entire BitPay team the awesome gift of a brand new ping-pong table!
The staff also pitched in to get our co-founders, Tony Gallippi and Stephen Pair some gifts as a thank you for everything they have done to get us where we are.
With that said we wanted to thank Atlanta Tech Village, the City of Atlanta as well as everyone who came out to celebrate with us last night! Now back to work :-)
