Press Release: The Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs Announces Major Ownership Stake in What Now Atlanta
Strategic acquisition unites entrepreneurship authority with industry news outlet spanning a circulation of 300,000 readers
ATLANTA (January 7, 2014) – The Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs, Atlanta’s authority on entrepreneurship, is pleased to announce that it has taken an ownership stake inWhat Now Atlanta, the city’s leading resource for real estate, restaurant and retail news. With its strong presence and vast network in each of these industries, The Oxford Center’s strategic acquisition of What Now Atlanta is a natural alignment of both business philosophies and subject matter.
“Through this partnership, The Oxford Center and What Now Atlanta will offer Atlantans access to an unrivaled range of up-to-the-minute news content, spanning business news and insights, as well as happenings in Atlanta’s real estate, hospitality and retail industries,” noted W. Cliff Oxford, founder and CEO of the Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs and author of The New York Times’ “You’re the Boss” blog. The Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs is one of the city’s most connected businesses with projects spanning the monthly CEO Roundtable discussion forum, Oxford Center Entrepreneurship MBA in partnership with Brenau University, and popularDoctorpreneur series. The Oxford Center has nationally distinguished itself with its education and commerce platforms for fast-growth entrepreneurs.
Founded by Caleb J. Spivak in January 2010, What Now Atlanta has more than 300,000 readers, making the popular news outlet Atlanta’s go-to source for insider and breaking news on the real estate, restaurant and retail industries. Spivak will continue to be active in directing the content that has made the news outlet so popular.
“The goal of this partnership is to build upon the synergies and resources of both teams and deliver even more exclusive news content. It’s a win-win for both businesses – and certainly for Atlantans,” said Spivak.
In the coming weeks, a team of writers and contributors will be jointly formed by The Oxford Center and What Now Atlanta to expand upon What Now’s traditional coverage while incorporating dynamic new business-specific content as it can only be sourced through The Oxford Center’s network of business leaders and decision makers.
