Vancouver, B.C. – September 22, 2018 – Liberty Defense Holdings Inc. (“Liberty”) is pleased to announce the completion of a sub-lease for its engineering and U.S. operations situated in the Atlanta Technology Park (ATP).
Liberty is a high-tech security startup that has established its operations in the ATP, an Atlanta suburban office park focused on fostering early-stage software and hardware technology companies.

Liberty COO and President of U.A. Operations Aman Bhardwaj commented, “Liberty prioritized selecting an area where we could balance the ability to recruit high-tech talent with a low cost of operations, open and collaborative workspace, and a business community geared towards innovation. We didn’t have to compromise on our criteria and priorities by leasing class A office space for research, product development, and operations at reasonable cost in ATP. We have been very successful in recruiting top talent in very short time due to our location and work space environment.”
