Over $6.5 billion in funding awarded to date; leading tech investment conference continues to select large and diverse lineup of innovators from the Southeast’s hottest tech markets.
ATLANTA – September 22, 2021 – The Diversity Movement announced today that it has been chosen out of a record-breaking 400-plus applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to be showcased at Venture Atlanta 2021 (October 20-21).
For 14 years, Venture Atlanta has selected the most promising tech companies and brought in top investment firms from across the nation to hear them pitch. The annual event has helped launch more than 500 companies and raised $6.5 billion in funding to date, serving the needs of the region’s vibrant tech community.
“Organizations are transforming workplace culture through innovative technologies that deliver results,” said Donald Thompson, CEO of The Diversity Movement. “Our goal is to change the world for the better through our Employee Experience solutions that offer companies a DEI journey built on digital tools, conversational AI, analytics, and a MicroVideo library that enables scalable learning across the organization.”
Personalized, scalable, and created from client-driven insights and analytics, The Diversity Movement’s technology tools enable businesses to offer employees a world-class experience that fosters behavior change, as well as a more just and equitable workplace.
“Venture Atlanta has become the authority for recognizing technology innovation across the Southeast and beyond, connecting the best and brightest innovators with top-tier, national investors and other leaders in our tech ecosystem,” said Venture Atlanta CEO Allyson Eman. “We again set a new record with over 400 applicants for Venture Atlanta Momentum 2021—it’s our most competitive year ever and reflects yet another raising of the bar in terms of presenter quality.”
This year’s Venture Atlanta will be held in person with a limited number of tickets available and will also be offered online for those who wish to tune in virtually. For those attending in person, Venture Atlanta is back with its always-great sessions, company presentations, networking opportunities, and outdoor dinner events.
Building off last year’s successful virtual model, Venture Atlanta’s online experience offers a high-production-quality option that mirrors the benefits of the live conference. Virtual attendees can connect with others at the conference, set up one-on-one meetings, stroll the virtual show floor, watch pitches in real-time, and use features like live chat and audience polling. Each ticket purchased provides attendees with on-demand access to all Venture Atlanta pitches and content for a full year.
Invesco is this year’s premier sponsor, with Mailchimp and Stax as presenting sponsors. Venture Atlanta will conclude with Atlanta Startup Battle, in which the top five ASB companies will pitch on stage against one another to win a $100,000 investment.
