Summer Startup Academy is a community-driven success that will have a lasting impact. People, companies, and organizations from across the city pitched in to help. Because of the community, 60 students enrolled, over 50 startup leaders volunteered their time, and everyone enjoyed 10 weeks of Connected Awesomeness.
The result? Budding college and high school student from Georgia Tech, UGA, Emory, SCAD, Georgia State, Morehouse College, Mercer University, Lehigh University, Tulane University, University of North Carolina, University of North Florida, a number of other colleges and even Atlanta high schools have a robust connection with the entire Atlanta tech startup community.
