Incubator will present 14 Georgia technology firms to New York City-based investors.
The Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), Georgia’s technology incubator, is taking 14 of Georgia’s most innovative and high-growth companies to New York City where those firms will meet and make presentations to more than 50 venture capital and growth equity firms.
The ATDC Venture Showcase is scheduled for Dec. 4 at Silicon Valley Bank in New York City’s Flatiron District.
The companies represent a diversity of industries that include cybersecurity, marketing, financial technology, healthcare IT, logistics, and the Internet of Things. All 14 participating companies are part of ATDC or graduates of its program:
- Illuma Care Connections
- Trust Stamp
The initiative is part of ATDC’s Investor Connect program, which strategically matches the incubator’s Signature and Accelerate portfolio companies with investor interactions. The ATDC Venture Showcase is co-hosted by Aprio, the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Morris, Manning & Martin, Silicon Valley Bank, and Venture Atlanta.
“Our core mission with these Showcases — we went to San Francisco earlier this year — is to show investors in the nation’s key venture capital centers what a rich ecosystem and portfolio of technology companies that are here in Georgia,” said ATDC Investor Relations Manager Michael A. Maziar.
“Investors can find tremendous value from our deal flow and incredible tech talent in Georgia and ATDC.”
The Showcase in San Francisco connected Evident, an ATDC Signature portfolio company, with New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Maziar said. “That initial connection led to much deeper discussions and resulted in NEA becoming the lead investor in Evident’s recent $8.8 million Series A round.”
