What we're about

ATL Startup Village is the largest bi-monthly gathering of entrepreneurs in the southeast, hosted at Atlanta Tech Village (http://atlantatechvillage.com).

The goal is to provide a forum for the new expression of ideas and business (in a five-minute pitch model), but also give entrepreneurs a place to discuss roadblocks and moving forward in a fun, friendly, inclusive environment. This group is focused on all Atlanta startups, not just technology startups, to broaden exposure and realize that all startups use technology and can benefit from one another.

Update:

We’ve showcased more than 350 startups, supporting them in their journey to success. ATLSV alums have scored investors, multiple funding rounds, acquisitions and incredible hires, and we hope we had a little something to do with that.

And after seven and a half years, we were ready to shake things up a bit!

Starting with our January 2020 event (https://www.meetup.com/Atlanta-Startup-Village/), ATLSV moved from a primarily monthly format to every other month. This will give our presenters more time to truly polish up their pitches, and provide stronger value for our attendees.

Now with Prizes

But wait, there’s more -- we’re keeping the same format of 5 companies, 5-minute pitches, but we’re adding just a little more incentive for presenters to bring their A-game: Audience Favorite voting tied to a pretty fancy prize! (Not just the bragging rights, though those are pretty cool too!)

The audience-selected “winner” from each event will have the opportunity to compete in a “Pitch-Off” at the final ATLSV of the year. Up for grabs is one year of two reserve desks and parking valued at $12,000 (if you're a current villager, you get a credit to your account)!
