The 12th annual Venture Atlanta conference will be held October 16-17, 2019 at the Southern Exchange @ 200 Peachtree in Atlanta, Georgia. Venture Atlanta is the largest venture capital conference in the region bringing together entrepreneurs from across the Southeast and investor funds from across the nation for a jam-packed two-day event. Here’s what investors can expect from Venture Atlanta 2019. 

8 Reasons Why Venture Atlanta is the Best Place to Meet Your Next Portfolio Company

1 – More portfolio companies applied to pitch this year than ever before. We had a 50% increase in applications compared to last year, and there’s even more representation from cities outside of Atlanta. This is your chance to see the top emerging tech companies from across the entire Southeast. 

2 – The presenting companies are vetted and coached. The tech industry is very competitive with a lot of noise and a lot of choices. We select the most proven and innovative portfolio companies and provide them with exceptional coaching so that every pitch is worth your time.

3 – We have a successful track record. Our companies collectively have achieved over $4B in capital raised and $14B in exits. See some of our biggest success stories

4 – It’s where your fellow investors will be. If you’re not at Venture Atlanta, you’re missing out. Join 300+ funds (including these big names) at this year’s event. 

5 – Get face time with the entrepreneurs at our Investor dinner. Our investor dinner is always one of the highlights of the conference. The CEOs of the presenting and showcase companies will be in attendance giving you an opportunity to connect directly with them. 

6 – We’ve introduced a new opportunity for later-stage investors. This year we’ll have a growth-stage track with sessions specifically geared toward later-stage companies and investors

7 – Don’t just take it from us. Hear testimonials from Ben Narasin of NEA, Jackie DiMonte of Hyde Park Venture Partners, Courtney Watson of the Chattanooga Renaissance Fund, and Mike Becker of Vocap Investment Partners.

8 – Book meetings ahead of time with the Venture Atlanta app. Make the most of your two days in Atlanta by setting up meetings ahead of time with your top prospects.
