PrizePicks Establishes Atlanta, Georgia, Headquarters

Daily fantasy sports operator PrizePicks plans to establish operations in Atlanta, Georgia. The $25 million project is expected to create 1,000 jobs over the next seven years.

The company's new 33,000-square-foot headquarters will be located in the Midtown Star Metals Building.

"Atlanta has always been our home, where we are redefining mobile sports entertainment," said Adam Wexler, PrizePicks Co-founder and CEO. "This move to Star Metals will help us create more world-class, high-skilled and high-wage jobs in our great city while we deepen our connections across the community."

Assistant Director of Statewide Projects Virginia Sengewald represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce team in partnership with the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Invest Atlanta, Select Fulton, and Georgia Power.

“Georgia is a hub for innovation, with a diverse, well-educated talent pool that is fed by the University System of Georgia,” noted GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “One way we keep young talent in the state is by creating jobs for them, and PrizePicks’ decision to expand in Atlanta is an incredible opportunity for Georgia-based tech professionals. Congratulations to PrizePicks on this exciting next step!”

PrizePicks is one of the largest skill-based daily fantasy sports operators. The company was recognized as the Fantasy Sports Business of the Year by the Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association and as the Fantasy/DFS Operator of the Year by EGR North America.

"Congratulations to Adam Wexler and the team at PrizePicks for choosing Atlanta to expand their headquarters," added Katie Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. "Metro Atlanta has all the ingredients to help PrizePicks thrive, including diverse tech talent graduating from our leading colleges and universities, global connectivity through our airport, a large and engaged business community and a desirable quality of life."
