Pitch Atlanta Recap - 2023

March 15, 2023

Investors from around the country joined a plethora of local investors March 1-2nd for our 2nd annual Pitch Atlanta event. This 24-hour, invite-only gathering at Atlanta Tech Village connected 15 of the best local startups with 100 accredited investors from across the nation.

“Pitch Atlanta is a chance to showcase some of our most innovative, fastest-growing startups to a wider investor audience. We have incredible talent here doing world-class work, and it's awesome to share that -- in fact, multiple attendees told me how blown away they were by the quality of the pitches and the founders!”

-- Aly Merritt (Managing Director of Atlanta Tech Village)

The idea for Pitch Atlanta sparked in 2019 with the inaugural event bringing together twenty early-stage startups and vetted investors in an intimate, fun, and authentic setting. The 2020 Pitch Atlanta went digital in the midst of the country shut-down. Now, after two years of hibernation, the event was back and stayed true to Atlanta’s southern hospitality roots, with a warm, accessible, and welcoming vibe. Merritt (and a guest appearance by Kathryn O’Day) served as a lively and entertaining host alongside the powerful and supportive Atlanta Tech Village team.

A Fireside Chat

Monica Delores Hooks, Executive Director of Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI), interviewed Chanel H. Frazier, Managing Director at BlackRock, Head of Business Strategy for the Portfolio Management Group and Head of the Atlanta Innovation Hub (iHub), in an intimate fireside chat. They covered innovation, tech, startups and investment, from Chanel’s unique perspective on the Atlanta innovation scene. It was insightful and inspiring!
