ATLANTA (Sept. 22, 2020) — The Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), Georgia’s technology incubator, is hosting a showcase that will feature 14 innovative, Georgia-based, healthcare technology companies and facilitate meetings with interested venture capital investors Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2020.
A digital event has been created using products and tools sourced from Atlanta-based tech companies Mailchimp, Cyrano, and Calendly.
The ATDC’s Showcase has been arranged in lieu of the face-to-face events the incubator has hosted in the past in New York City, Boston, and the West Coast. A similar and successful event was held earlier this year when travel and work-from-home restrictions were enforced.
Fourteen Georgia-based companies are scheduled to participate in this event. The companies represent Georgia’s technology strength in a diversity of healthcare sectors including medical devices, therapeutics, Internet of Things (IoT), and digital health:
- Ethos Medical
- MedTrans Go
- Moonlight Therapeutics
- OXOS Medical
- RCE Technologies
- Strados Labs
- TGen Tech
Twelve 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. Co-hosts for the event include Aprio, DLAPiper, the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Morris, Manning & Martin, Silicon Valley Bank, and Venture Atlanta. The event is supported by Georgia BIO, the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI), NASCO, and TAG Digital Health.
“These Showcases are designed and curated for investors to show Georgia’s rich ecosystem with a portfolio of high-caliber healthcare technology companies,” said ATDC Investor Relations Manager Brad Schweizer. “Venture capitalists can see firsthand the funding potential and outstanding tech talent in Georgia and at ATDC.”
In each of the last three years, ATDC portfolio companies have raised more than $100 million and since launching the ATDC Venture Showcases in 2017, Georgia-based tech companies have raised more than $80 million from investors who attended these events.
