Exhibitors at 2012 Showcase
Which annual event brings together hundreds of Georgia entrepreneurs, startups and technology leaders, as well as robots, an innovative “swim browser” and a solar-powered race car? That would be ATDC’s 2013 Startup Showcase, where the local technology community will gather on Monday for one of Atlanta’s premier industry events.
Held at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center, the showcase is open to the public and will include speeches from Bill Nussey, president and CEO of Silverpop, Steve Cross, Georgia Tech’s executive vice president for research, and Hans Gant, Metro Atlanta Chamber’s senior vice president of economic development. Each year, the event honors Georgia’s brightest entrepreneurs and emerging technologies, putting a spotlight on ATDC’s graduating companies – all of whom have met rigorous growth milestones. In addition, dozens of ATDC’s most promising member companies – representing industries as varied as information security, financial technology, health care IT, mobile technology, clean tech/energy, and medical devices – will exhibit their innovative technologies during the event.
“Someone asks me every day what the most innovative ATDC companies are doing. The Showcase is open to everyone, so it’s your chance to see for yourself,” said Blake Patton, ATDC’s interim general manager. “These graduates have achieved what all of our startups are striving for by taking innovative ideas and turning them into great businesses. They serve as examples of the value that entrepreneurs bring to this region.”
