Twenty-one clients of Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP’s Corporate Technology Group have been accepted for Venture Atlanta – one of the nation’s most prestigious venture capital conferences. Of a record 500 applicants from across the Southern U.S., only 85 companies made the cut to present or be showcased. This means MMM represents roughly one-quarter of the companies accepted.
“We’re extremely proud of these companies; with a record number of applications this year, these companies have already set themselves apart by making the cut,” said MMM Corporate Technology Partner Nick Foreste. “Their selection means they will receive top-tier networking opportunities both at the conference and after – plus coaching and other valuable services to help bolster visibility and accelerate growth,” added Foreste, who co-chairs the Selection Committee.
Now celebrating its 15th year, Venture Atlanta will be held Wednesday, October 19 and Thursday, October 20 at The Woodruff Arts Center and Atlanta Symphony Hall. Conference organizers divide the companies into three categories: Seed-Stage Showcase, Early-Stage Venture and Growth-Stage. Each selected company gets positive exposure, a free press kit and social media coverage.
