“Venture Atlanta proved again this year to feature the fastest-growing early stage technology companies in the Southeast. We’re excited to invest in a number of the companies that presented at Venture Atlanta, given the conference’s strong track record. Companies presenting at Venture Atlanta over the past five years have collectively raised over $650M of add-on capital, and seen 20 investment exits. We’ve made it easier for individual investors to get access to the best-of-the-best companies where we can then manage those investments through our fund,” said Mike Dowdle, Managing Partner of the 11-11 Venture Atlanta 2018 fund and also Circadian Group.
“We know the tremendous value and multiplier effect of bringing strategic capital to technology startups at this stage of their evolution,” said Karen Cashion, CEO of Tech Alpharetta. “We’re especially proud that 11-11 Ventures focuses on investing in tech companies in the southeast and sharing their own entrepreneurial experience with those startups.”
