Atlanta Technology Angels pushing two initiatives focused on diversity

Atlanta Inno reports that the Atlanta Technology Angels (ATA) group is pushing two diversity initiatives this quarter to make sure that its investments are made to female or minority founders and that the ATA membership is also diverse.

One initiative is making sure at least one of the three start-ups that pitch to the organization at the monthly member meeting has a female or minority founder. The other is putting the first $1,500 of the $2,000 membership dues from female or minority members toward their first investment instead of the nonprofit’s operating costs.
