Gwinnett Innovation Park, which has served as home for more than 75 startups over the last 15 years, is seeing more firms moving in…” Leland also noted “Gwinnett has more privately owned small to medium-size companies who are not aspiring to be taken over by some large company or go public. They are simply in business for what they do and they’re very profitable.”
