Details

We are excited to share that the event will be held in-person but will also be offered digitally as well for those who wish to tune in virtually. We will take everything you love about our traditional in-person conferences and combine that with highly-applauded production quality and innovation of last year’s virtual event.

The theme for Venture Atlanta 2021 is “Momentum.” 2020 was an incredibly difficult year for so many. But it was inspiring to watch our alumni companies, our investors, and our community be resilient, innovative, and supportive in order to keep moving forward. Despite all odds, connections were formed, deals were closed, and progress was made. We want to keep that momentum going — to be even bigger and better this year because of what we all went through last year. This is the energy that our audience will feel (whether in the room or through the screen), at Venture Atlanta 2021! So get excited — you don’t want to miss out!
