We moved the timing of CapVenture up a bit this year. It starts on August 19th and concludes with an investor forum on October 7th. Last year the companies that presented at the forum generated 56 requests from investors for one on one meetings. And five of the fifteen companies that participated in the program raised money.
But why did we move the date? To give the participating companies some time before the holidays to get out in the fund raising process. But that is not all. Get this. The top CapVenture companies will have an additional opportunity to
present to dozens of investors through an automatic slot during the
ATDC/Venturelab early stage forum at Venture Atlanta.
The early application deadline is June 19th and the final deadline is July 15. If you are serious about raising money for your startup, you should apply. We intend to provide some valuable fundraising tools and a workshop to every company that completes an application.
