“Georgia’s digital entertainment industry is thriving, and when we have the opportunity to add a top Hispanic digital platform to the mix it puts a spotlight on the diversity of this industry,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “I am excited that MundoHispanico.com has chosen Atlanta to expand their offerings, and we look forward to working with their team to make sure they have the resources they need to be successful here.”
