GoProcure Named Top 50 “Rising Star” Technology Company
ATLANTA, GA–October 10, 2017 — Venture Atlanta, the South’s premier technology innovation and investor conference, recently announced the 50 companies selected to present and showcase their wares at its 10th annual event to be held October 11-12 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. Through the years, Venture Atlanta has earned a reputation for consistently identifying tomorrow’s cutting-edge technologies while helping to launch over 380 companies and secure over $2 billion in funding. This year’s event, expected to bring close to 150 funds from across the country and a sold out crowd of over 900, will also feature Mark Cuban and Ernie Garcia, the CEO of Carvana, as keynote speakers and will include the strongest and largest roster yet of early and venture-stage companies—showcasing the depth, breadth and opportunity within the region’s technology community.
“After a record number of entries this year, including companies from all over our region as well as from Washington, D.C., Florida and Virginia, we could not be more pleased with this new crop of promising technology companies,” said Christopher Maxwell, partner at Morris, Manning & Martin, a 10-year event sponsor. Maxwell is also the Venture Atlanta 2017 company selection chair. “We’re eager to work with these companies to connect them with the capital, people and resources they need to accelerate their innovation and growth.”
