What we do

The best place on earth to scale a technology company.

ATDC has been the startup garage to dozens of early-stage science and technology-based companies - among the most renowned and transformative companies ever to be born in the Southeast. The founders we support are visionary, determined, and diverse; sometimes establishing a presence in Georgia just to be eligible for ATDC membership. With six locations around the state, we serve 150+ companies at any given time and graduate 8-10 companies each year.

WE DO MORE THAN SUPPORT STARTUPS

Crafting Frameworks of Success to Elevate Your Global Vision

Assess

We start by pinpointing your strengths and challenges, immersing you in tailored advice, and mapping out a strategic plan that understands and addresses your unique position in the marketplace.

Advise

Our seasoned mentors, Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs), Catalysts, and industry professionals bring their deep expertise to the table. They don't just offer advice—they connect you with essential insights and guidance to navigate the complexities of your industry.

Connect

Beyond advice, we actively bridge the gaps between your company and the critical resources it needs to thrive: capital, customers, and top talent.

Founder reviews
ATDC’s support enabled us to secure the funding that enabled us to win in clinical trials against the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies
JELENA VUKASINOVIC
Founder & CEO
ATDC was a great program for Medxoom. From coaching to mentorship, to finding new talent and interns, to meeting investors, our experience was positive. ATDC made a real impact on our early growth; we successfully raised a series A, and Medxoom was recently acquired!
Jeff Toewe

ATDC was a great partner and helped us scale FilmHedge to be the fastest growing lending platform to Hollywood, TV, and Film producers. As an Atlanta based company, founded by homegrown Atlantans, we're proud to be alumni.
