The Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), the state of Georgia’s technology incubator, is sponsoring a Pitch Circus Feb. 2, 2018 during Geekend 2018, the annual conference that draws the brightest and most innovative minds in technology to Savannah, Georgia.
Geekend, scheduled for Feb. 2-3 (tickets available here), brings makers, hustlers, hackers, and designers together with other entrepreneurial innovators in the technology and creative spaces — to foster new partnerships, pursue networking opportunities, and kick start the launch of new ideas.
The Pitch Circus (apply here) is designed to highlight the best and most serious technology companies from Georgia in an event where they will meet and pitch to investors, said José Mallabo, ATDC’s startup catalyst in Savannah.
