It’s time to step into the spotlight and show us what you’re made of!
Venture Atlanta, the premier investor showcase in the Southeast, today announced it has opened its 2018 call for companies. The region’s top innovative tech companies once again have the chance to vie for a spot on stage in October and join the ranks of highly successful Venture Atlanta alumni. Venture Atlanta has been connecting companies to capital, customers and partners for over a decade, with presenting companies having collectively raised over $2.5 billion and garnered over $14 billion in exits.
“This year we are focused on showcasing even more innovative companies throughout the Southeast, creating unique opportunities for them to jump into the spotlight, network and be discovered by top-tier investors,” said Paul Iaffaldano, managing director of BIP Capital and a Venture Atlanta board member, in a statement. “Venture Atlanta has truly become a foundation of the tech ecosystem in a region that is experiencing a whole new wave of innovation and growth.”
“Last year alone we witnessed dozens of companies funded as a result of the exposure and connections made at the conference.”
