It’s great to see so many Atlantans writing about startups, events, hack-a-thons etc.

Here are two articles from Atlanta Startup Community Journalists (real journalists) that are great reads.

Things are hot in the Atlanta:

Govathon finds tech solutions to Atlanta problems by the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Urvaksh.

City of Atlanta hosts key tech ‘Startup’ events; launches first ‘Govathon’ from the SaportaReport’s Saba Long.

Also, definitely check out the Atlanta Startup Community Blogroll on more analysis from last week’s events and great momentum.

Feel free to play the T.I. Soundtrack below while you read the articles:


Momentum in the Atlanta Startup Community is very infectious. Last month’s skype-chat with Brad Feld was incredible. 

In the last month, a new $250mm dollar fund was announced, Frank Moyer, the new Entrepreneur in Residence was announced at the ATDC…and he writes a badass blog, and Insightpool just raised a solid round.


This month’s Atlanta Startup Village is going to the biggest and best one yet. Before announcing the companies presenting next week, it’s important to give the guys at Hypepotamus a huge thanks. Heath, Kevin, and Scott, have been so helpful and instrumental in hosting that past Atlanta Startup Villages that we’re giving them an eternal sponsorship with the Atlanta Startup Village. Major thanks to Scott and Co.

So where is Atlanta Startup Village moving?

Jonathan Baker of Monday Night Brewing just opened an awesome brewery over on the Westside of Atlanta and has opened his doors for the startup community. It’s just north of Atlanta’s water treatment plant. Here is the exact location.

People are RSVP’ing here on the Meetup. Already 100+ people have signed up and the first 150 (at the door) get in the free. After that it’s $10.

Without further adieu, let’s get to the 5 companies presenting this month. They range from just raising $5mm to prototype:

Zoompf helps the Enterprise build faster websites to increase customer engagement and satisfaction.

Sideqik connects marketing partners and make your marketing partnerships much more effective.

Contigly connect buildings and people so they can communicate local-based Emergency Notifications

Monday Night Brewing brews beers for the weeknights – balanced, flavorful ales that pair well with food.

BetterCloud is a leading developer of Google Apps management tools that empower administrators and end users to get more out of Google Apps.

Detail Reminders:
Time: Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00 p.m. doors open. Demos start at 7:30 p.m.
Location: Monday Night Brewery (670 Trabert Ave NW  Atlanta, GA 30318)
Who: Anybody who wants to learn, be constructive, positive, and helpful.

We won’t have food there, so it’s  wise to eat before enjoying the delicious Monday Night Brew.

Atlanta Startup Village is co-hosted by Chris Beauregard of MailChimp and Jon Birdsong of WideAngle – 1 on 1 Meeting software, in coordination with the amazing staff of the Atlanta Tech Village.

See many of you there!
