Join us for a discussion that zooms in on the distinctions between the Atlanta startup ecosystem and the broader Southeastern venture capital landscape, compared to the more traditional Silicon Valley investors.
The conversation will explore the specific challenges and opportunities unique to the SE, emphasizing strategies for startups in Atlanta to attract and secure funding from investors beyond the region.
Attendees can expect to gain valuable insights into tailoring pitches, building relationships with investors from diverse backgrounds, and leveraging the strengths of the local ecosystem while navigating the differences in investor expectations and criteria between the SE and Silicon Valley.
The goal is to foster a nuanced understanding of fundraising dynamics for entrepreneurs in the SE aiming to broaden their scope and connect with investors outside the traditional hotspots.
