The Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), Georgia’s technology incubator, is taking 14 innovative and high-growth Georgia-based companies to New York City where those firms will meet and make presentations to more than 75 investors from 50 leading venture capital and growth equity firms.
The ATDC Venture Showcase is scheduled for Nov. 28 at Silicon Valley Bank in New York City’s Flatiron District.
The companies represent Georgia’s technology strength in a diversity of industries that include cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, financial technology, healthcare IT, and logistics:
Eleven of the participating companies are currently in ATDC’s portfolio.
The initiative stems from ATDC’s Investor Connect program, which strategically matches the incubator’s portfolio companies with investor interactions. In addition to Silicon Valley Bank, the ATDC Venture Showcase is co-hosted by Aprio, DLA Piper, the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Morris, Manning & Martin, and Venture Atlanta.
“These Showcases to New York, Boston, and San Francisco are designed and curated for investors based in those cities to show Georgia’s rich ecosystem and portfolio of high-caliber technology companies,” said ATDC Assistant Director Jane McCracken. “By bringing some of our most innovative companies to the nation’s key venture capital centers, investors can see firsthand the funding potential and outstanding tech talent in Georgia and at ATDC.”
Since launching the ATDC Venture Showcase in 2017, Georgia-based tech companies have raised more than $40 million from investors who attended these events.
