With a decade of Venture Atlanta behind us, we reflect on another amazing event that took place last week. Venture Atlanta has witnessed so much in the last 10 years including helping secure over $2 billion in funding awarded to date and it’s been thrilling to watch Venture Atlanta grow, tech companies thrive and the Southeast rise in national startup status. Read our summary of some key highlights and observations from the two-day event.
We were so excited to see the results of our client, BIP Capital’s, The State of Startups in the Southeast™ report. This report delivers a comprehensive overview of the venture capital and startup ecosystem in the southeastern United States.
The 2016 ATDC Startup Showcase reinforced that with each generation of technology, we seem to be getting closer to sales and marketing solutions that are easy to implement, available to smaller companies and quicker to generate results.
I recently sat down with technology entrepreneur and ATDC’s acting general manager, Jennifer Bonnett, to learn what it’s been like to grow her career from software developer to CTO to startup community catalyst, and more.
In the 30 years that I’ve worked in the tech and life science sectors in Atlanta, I’ve met some really smart people. In my “B2B Visions” series of posts, I am taking the opportunity to introduce you to some of them. Today, I have the pleasure of sharing a conversation I had with Bill Jones of local VC firm, TechOperators.
