A Love Letter to the ATL Tech Village’s Erin Rosintoski

Anyone who has spent any time in the Atlanta tech scene knows that Erin Rosintoski is an angel among us. Being a community leader in the startup world isn’t an easy job – early mornings, late nights, planning event after event, strong personalities, limited resources, and an endless to-do list to make it happen.  Erin excelled at all of this (and more) with grace and endless energy during her time with the Atlanta Tech Village. She even took many of the opportunities presented to the Village and spread them among the community.

From inception in January of 2013 to her departure August 2015, Erin says she was lucky and thankful to work with an amazing team of people to help bring the idea of Atlanta Tech Village to life. From operations to events to marketing, Erin had her hands in many aspects of the business. Now as she moves on to her next opportunity at GuildQuality we want to make sure she knows just how appreciative the community is for all she has done.

Erin you put your soul into giving the tech community a new home and a valuable resource and we want you to know that your efforts didn’t go unnoticed:

Erin is someone who wants to do what’s best for Atlanta. I enjoyed working with her on the Rise of the Rest tour this past May and making sure it represented the broader story. – Scott Henderson

Erin and I started working together 2.5 years ago, a short 3 weeks after David Cummings bought a 103,000 square foot building that would soon become one of the Top 10 largest tech hubs in the US- Atlanta Tech Village. We worked crazy hours, had lots of laughs, and may even have shed a tear or two through renovations, furniture orders, trips to IKEA, hundreds of events, and a community that has grown from 10ppl to over 900. It has been an incredible startup journey for the Village and I would not have wanted to to do it with anyone else. Erin has been an integral part of the startup community in Atlanta and at the Village, and I am proud to be her colleague and her friend. She is a Villager for life and an incredible person. We wish her much happiness and future success! – Karen Houghton

Erin’s influence on the Atlanta Tech Village has set the Villagers on a course of creativity, a prioritization of art, and a culture of paying it forward for years. I couldn’t imagine a better individual to take the former, stodgy “Private Bank” to the innovative, beautiful and inclusive Atlanta Tech Village. Erin is a builder and the foundation of Atlanta Tech Village has been built. I am excited for her next adventure; constantly iterating is the truest form of entrepreneurship and improvement. Her energy and talents are already missed, but I’m glad they’re staying in Atlanta. – Jon Birdsong

Working with Erin and the rest of the team to build Atlanta Tech Village has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Erin was an integral part – her passion, hard work, and love of a great spreadsheet will be missed. Most of all though she’s been a great team member and friend. She’ll always have a place she can call home here. –

Erin has been instrumental in the growth and development of the Atlanta Tech Village. She has the unique ability to see the bigger picture, while knowing exactly how to execute to ensure it the vision is realized. Her ideas, creativity and kind spirit will undoubtedly be missed. Erin has played a huge role in the growth of the Village, which is why I know she will do great things with her next adventure. – Brooke Beach
