August 28 is deadline to apply to pitch at “Venture Atlanta Live Online”

You have almost two months to apply to pitch at the first-ever “Venture Atlanta” virtual competition. Now billed as “Venture Atlanta Live Online,” deadline to apply to be considered is August 28. The event itself, which features a number of keynote speakers and breakout panels, is October 21 and 22.

According to details posted on the event’s website, “The presenting companies will pitch live on our studio stage and will have a customizable pitch and company materials featured on-demand for a full year following the conference. This means that our investors will still be able to view your pitch even if they aren’t able to watch it live. For the showcase we will have a virtual event room with pre-recorded videos of each showcase company. You will not need to fight for the time and attention of investors in a crowded cocktail hour. Instead they will be able to browse, uninterrupted at their leisure.”
