ATDC’s Lance Weatherby has made a big impact in his almost 3 years at the incubator. It is no coincidence that during his tenure at ATDC, many great community initiatives have started and been hosted by ATDC, including StartupWeekend, BarCamp, CloudCamp, and Meet the VC.He is also a friend of the StartUpChicks in Atlanta.
One of Lance's lasting contributions to the ATDC is his creation and leadership of ATDC’s blog, www.peachseedz.com. This blog is a great resource to Georgia's entrepreneurial community and has a growing subscriber base of over 3,000.
The enthusiasm that Lance has for web technology is inspiring and is bringing momentum to Atlanta. The ATDC has brought in more web companies since he began here as a
venture catalyst and he has inspired me, an early majority at best, to become active on Twitter and to experiment with Facebook. Along with Lance, a handful of other companies are
making Atlanta an exciting center for tech entrepreneurship. The
leaders of Shotput Ventures are a great story of current tech
entrepreneurs investing in future tech entrepreneurs – a good sign of
the maturation of Atlanta’s tech community.
