Our friends over at The MIT Enterprise Forum invite you to get a sneak peek at Atlanta’s newest, and perhaps under the radar, tech investment funds. Panelists will share best practices and their vision for their next big investment. Lunch with these leading experts and learn about the target for their new funds.
As a bonus, attendees will also be some of the first to get an inside look at Atlanta’s new incubator, The Farm. The Farm is housed at The Battery Atlanta and offers a variety of programs to support and nurture selected startups and entrepreneurs, including a twice-a-year, three-month accelerator program, premium incubator office space, cutting edge hardware prototype lab and coworking.
