Startup Rally on February 18; Largest Gathering of Startups in Georgia since 1895

by Scott Henderson


Are you ready for the largest gathering of startups and entrepreneurs in the state of Georgia since the 1895 Cotton States and International Exposition? On February 18th, startups from across metropolitan Atlanta and greater Georgia will convene in the grand Georgian Ballroom of The Biltmore for a daylong celebration of Georgia’s entrepreneurial spirit.

Startup Rally is one part startup exposition, one part summer internship fair, and one part launch of Startup Georgia – a startup-led, statewide initiative to raise the profile of Georgia startups as part of the national network Startup America Partnership. On February 18th, you will:

  • Find resources to help you build your startup
  • Discover summer internship opportunities
  • Meet with successful entrepreneurs and hear their stories

The festivities begin at 3pm when the Startup Expo and Summer Internship Fair opens its doors for students and guests interested in meeting the up-and-coming startups from a wide variety of sectors and industries. While visitors explore the exposition floor, we’ll feature various speakers and panels who will share insights into what it’s like to be an entrepreneur and share their tips on career choices within the startup community.

Starting at 5:30pm, we’ll feature some of Georgia’s highest profile entrepreneurs and most successful startups representing a wide range of sectors, including technology, manufacturing, entertainment, and everything in between. Joining us for the festivities will be Scott Case, CEO of Startup America Partnership and the former CTO and co-founder of Priceline.com, and a number of other well known entrepreneurs.

You can meet and interact with all the great entrepreneurs and startups who will be gathered under one roof. Register for your free ticket today!

I am the VP HR for the Metro Atlanta Chamber. To help promote the event, I have forwarded the event link to leaders in recruiting offices at local colleges – asking them to share it with students. A few have asked what employers are participating. Are you able to share that list?
Thanks for your help.
