The Roundtable coincides with Global Entrepreneur Week, taking place November 12-18, which celebrates global innovators and job creators who launch start-ups that bring ideas to life and drive economic growth. 2012 has been an exciting year specifically for Atlanta’s start-up community. In August, Invest Atlanta launched Start Up Atlanta specifically designed to revitalize and engage the local start-up community. This initiative and others continue to join together with the ultimate goal of increasing Atlanta’s visibility as a strong technology hub for entrepreneurs and early stage companies.
Start-Up Council, which is in its sixth year serving the start-up community, is comprised of industry experts across a variety of verticals, who provide guidance to entrepreneurs as it relates to public relations, social marketing, funding, legal, business development, outsourced manufacturing, marketing and branding.
Since 2006, Start-Up Council has successfully advised more than 40 companies who have gone on to achieve success in business. Entries for the upcoming event on November 13 will be accepted until Monday, November 5. Applications can be found at http://www.trevelinokeller.com/
“Leaders and established organizations in Atlanta continue to recognize the need to support this innovative group of early stage companies, which is what keeps this community growing,” says Genna Keller, principal at Trevelino/Keller, the founding member of the Start-Up Council. “We are encouraged this fall to see the vast amount of countries and organizations that are partnering together to elevate the visibility and importance of supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs. Start-Up Council offers a unique platform for entrepreneurs to gain additional insight and develop meaningful relationships with potential investors and other business minded executives as they pursue new business ventures.”
