August 2012: The Iron Yard announced today that it will hold its inaugural demo day on September 5 at the Buckhead Club from 4:00 – 6:00 pm, hosted by Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP. Ten teams will present their seven-minute investor pitches followed up with a social time for the teams and investors to interact and get to know each other. The innovative startup companies include a sports network for amateur athletes, a hotel-booking site that leverages locally-negotiated rates, an online platform for intercity carpooling, an app that helps diners discover restaurants through food ratings and customer reviews, and more.

“We’re very pleased to host the Iron Yard demo day and continue our support of start-up companies in the Southeast,” commented John Yates, chair of the Technology Group at Morris, Manning & Martin.  “As the capital of the region, Atlanta is a natural city for this inaugural start-up event.”
