Atlanta (October 2020) – Morris, Manning & Martin is pleased to represent 27 technology companies participating in Venture Atlanta on October 21 and 22. The event is the Southeast’s largest investor showcase. Its goal is to connect startups with the funding, clients, partnerships, and talent they need to grow.
“Being accepted to Venture Atlanta – whether to present or participate in the showcase – is a unique opportunity for a start-up or growth-stage company,” said Chris Maxwell, who chairs MMM’s Emerging Companies and Growth Equity Practice and served on the Venture Atlanta Selection Committee. “The recognition is even more significant given that more than 400 companies applied this year.”
Since this year’s conference is virtual, more companies than ever applied – setting a new record. At least half the chosen businesses are from outside Georgia – double the number from last year. The recognized companies cover a range of sectors including consumer goods, logistics, information security, data information management and analytics, fintech, health IT, mobile and more.
