Need some startup advice? You may want to chat with our newest ATDC team member, experienced in the world of technology startups. Frank Moyer has joined our distinguished Entrepreneur in Residence team and will help coach member startups on business model searches, fundraising, team development and more. Along with existing EIRs Tim Dorr and Dan Ciprari, Moyer will focus on connecting young entrepreneurs with prospective business advisors, investors and customers in the market.
“There is so much amazing technology and talent coming out of Georgia Tech,” said Moyer. “We are in the middle of a technology market explosion right now. Atlanta has an opportunity to turn these startups coming out of Georgia Tech into big businesses. I am really excited to work with these companies to make that happen.”
Armed with a computer science degree, Moyer’s first role was with Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing firm. He next managed a 110-person company, before taking on a CEO role with Atlanta-based startup, EzGov. When that company was acquired in 2009, he ran GeoIQ, a DC-based startup experiencing some growth pains. GeoIQ was bought by Esri last year, so Moyer is now working on building a new startup.
The seasoned entrepreneur will host regular office hours to accommodate one-on-one meetings with member companies. In addition, he will regularly participate in ATDC events and the monthly New Member Orientations. When Moyer is not in the office, you can find him running, cycling and swimming.
“I like to do triathlons,” said Moyer, who competed in IRONMAN Arizona last November. “I also still play my favorite sport, water polo, in a master’s league at Georgia Tech.”
