The Battle is Back …No, We’re Not Talking About the Elections
We’re talking about one of the biggest competitions of the year, the Atlanta Startup Battle. The carefully crafted competition presents a unique opportunity for startup growth and investment for participants. Over the next few weeks, leading up to the competition, the top participants develop their ideas with seasoned mentors and present to active venture capital investors — both local and from Silicon Valley — all in an effort to identify and support the next generation of outstanding tech companies.
The Atlanta Startup Battle gives meaningful experiences to its finalists. The top ten applicants receive a full day of hands-on mentorship from experts in user experience, go-to-market strategy, brand refinement and engineering. They get to pitch to real investors with $1B worth of portfolio investments and $200M of early-stage investment capital, and make long-lasting networking opportunities.
