Who We Are

Meet Venture Atlanta

The Venture Atlanta Conference has evolved from a two-day, high-caliber event into a full-blown community dedicated to bringing innovative companies, disruptive technologies, and top-tier investors together.

Our Story

Sixteen years ago, we began with one mission: to connect companies to capital.

Starting in 2007 with a couple hundred attendees and only 20 investment funds, Venture Atlanta now welcomes more than 1,300 annual attendees and well over 350 investment funds, many of which come from out of state. The conference’s network and events have led to $7.5 billion in fundings raised and over $17 billon in successful exits including Kabbage, Cloud Sherpas, Roadie, ParkMobile, SalesLoft, and many more.

Today, our mission has evolved to encompass the connections, resources, partnerships, and community forged beyond our annual conference in support of the Southeast’s most promising tech companies.
