Several weeks ago on my personal blog I mentioned that ATDC was going to get involved and create some programming to help improve the startup ecosystem in Georgia. I am pleased to announce the first leg of this effort.
ATDC, with ongoing assistance from Noro-Moseley Partners, has put together a monthly series entitled "Meet the VC". These sessions will serve as a platform for local as well as out of town venture capitalists to engage with the ATDC and the broader Georgia entrepreneur community. These sessions will be open to anyone that cares to attend and not exclusive to ATDC member companies.
This effort has several objectives:
- Introduce top tier local, regional, and national venture capital firms to our market and the investment opportunities available in Georgia;
- Educate the entrepreneurial community about the fund raising process;
- Deliver insight into venture capitalists’ investment criteria;
- Provide specific venture capital firm profiles.
Alan Taetle from Noro-Moseley Partners will open the series on Wednesday, September 17 in the Hodges Room on the 3rd floor of ATDC. We are going to play around with the timing of this as we go but registration for this event will begin at 7:30 am with the program starting at 8:00 am and running for an hour. The series is free but you need to register to attend.
We look forward to seeing you there!
