If you lead a promising and growing company seeking funding, the Venture Atlanta stage is the place to be, November 2-3. The largest investor showcase in the Southeast has helped its pitching companies successfully connect with investors to raise more than $1.6 billion. To add to that total and gain exposure to business leaders representing the entire technology ecosystem, southeast startups should apply to Venture Atlanta by August 31.
Venture Atlanta celebrates 15 years this fall as the annual event in the Southeast where leading entrepreneurs, investors, and influencers convene, connect, and dish coin. The two-day networking opportunity will take place at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, where selected companies will pitch their products to an expected sold-out crowd. Presenting companies are favored with professional couching, marketing support and one-on-one meetings with local and national venture fund groups.
“Venture Atlanta has been, and continues to be, vital to the cultivation of both early and growth-stage companies in our community,” said Philip Lewis, Principal of Fulcrum Equity Partners. “I look forward to seeing the talented crop of innovators that are selected this year to present.”
Early-stage and high-growth technology companies wanting to raise capital in the next 12 to 18 months are encouraged to apply. Funding hopefuls should hail from Georgia or the Southeast’s expanded footprint which reaches from Texas to D.C. There are no application fees and chosen presenters will attend the conference free of charge.
In 2015, Venture Atlanta featured 32 companies, 100-plus venture capital funds, and more than 875 attendees. The annual nonprofit event is a collaboration of three leading Georgia business organizations: Atlanta CEO Council, Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG).
