Savannah: A City Built on Business

From the invention of the cotton gin on Chatham County's Mulberry Plantation, which led to the Savannah Cotton Exchange being known as the "Wall Street of the South," to the first steam ship to cross the Atlantic Ocean — the Savannah — in 1819, the City of Savannah has long been recognized as a location for business.

In fact, today, Savannah is located in the No. 1 state for doing business according to Site Selection magazine and Area Development. And Southern Business & Development magazine called Savannah a “Top Ten Southern Market for Fostering Technology.”

And with a skilled workforce, an unsurpassed infrastructure, available property and a community committed to your success, Savannah has everything to propel your business.
