Venture Atlanta D&I Initiative
JUNE + JULY 2021
CREATING MOMENTUM

Powered by Metro Atlanta Chamber and Goodie Nation, Venture Atlanta has launched this panel series to open the door for greater conversation on diversity and broaden the pool of startups looking to raise venture capital, pitch on stage, and get into accelerators.

WE’RE ON A MISSION TO IDENTIFY AND SUPPORT THE TOP DIVERSE TECH STARTUP FOUNDERS FROM DC TO TEXAS

Creating Momentum is a series of virtual panel sessions hosted by Venture Atlanta and powered by Metro Atlanta Chamber and Goodie Nation. Moderated by the Venture Atlanta Board of Directors Diversity & Inclusivity Committee and featuring investors, community builders, and founders who raised venture capital as panelists, the goal is to help diverse founders drive the most impact by capturing the audience’s attention, building meaningful relationships with investors and securing funding opportunities.

Speakers from the following Southeastern tech hubs will serve as hosts: Atlanta, Birmingham, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Nashville, New Orleans, and Washington D.C.

These sessions are open to any tech company founders in the Southeast, but are intended for underrepresented founders (women and BIPOC founders). This series is completely free. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of this important dialogue. Register today.
