On July 1, 2013, co-hosts Lee Kantor and Stone Payton of BusinessRadioX®'s Atlanta Business Radio sat down with Craig Hyde from Rigor, Kevin Sandlin from deductmor, Sandra Anderson and Melissa Davis from elev8 Staffing and Karen Houghton to discuss their businesses and careers at Atlanta Tech Village.

Atlanta Tech Village, established in 2012, is a community of innovation powered by a 103,000 square foot building located in Buckhead. The ATV is designed to service technology and technology-related companies that have a unique set of needs in their quest to change the world. According to Karen Houghton, Community Manager at ATV, "Physical space should provide much more than just a desk and a place to hang your hat — it should bring the community together, promote serendipitous interactions, and be a powerful tool for recruiting the best talent."

ATV's mission is to support and inspire entrepreneurs to achieve success through a community that promotes faster connections between talent, ideas and capital.

As Co-Founder and President of Rigor, Craig Hyde is responsible for product management, marketing, sales, and operations. Rigor offers web application monitoring, mobile monitoring, instant downtime alerts and performance reports. Hyde is also active in the Advanced Technology Development Center ATDC) at Georgia Tech.

Kevin Sandlin is Founder and President at deductmor, a service for self-employed individuals to capture and store tax receipts. Explained Sandlin, "We created deductmor because we saw a big, gnarly problem every quarter for a lot of people and every year for a whole lot of people." Self-employed professionals don’t get a W-2 and don’t have a payroll department to handle all their payroll taxes, so deductmor created a very simple way to capture, store, and organize tax deductible expense receipts.

Rounding out the discussion was Sandra Anderson and Melissa Davis, Partners with elev8 Staffing, a firm whose placement specialties include IT, Engineering, and Technical Sales. With a background in top IT staffing and consulting firms in Atlanta, Anderson created alliances and teamed up with some of the most respected, high producing recruiters to form elev8. Davis brings her leadership and strength as a Top Recruiter to source developers, quality assurance, information systems, Data Warehouse, Business Intelligence, and Engineers.
