“Our inaugural event accomplished its goal of bringing promising entrepreneurs together with angel investors who can provide access not only to funding, but also to their considerable expertise and experience,” said Jim Eckstein, partner at The Angel Advisors, an Atlanta-based advisory group spearheading The Ignition Project. “We’re proud of the showcased companies and believe they represent the very best of what Atlanta offers in terms of entrepreneurial innovation, drive and potential – something attested to by our post-event survey in which investors indicated that our presenters were of a very high caliber.”
Eckstein further stated that the response to The Ignition Project in terms of presenter applicants, panel participation, program sponsorship and investor interest warranted further pursuit and he is spearheading a group of Angels to look into the prospect of developing a formal organization committed to bringing financial and intellectual capital to the early stage market in the southeast.
“We were excited by the quality of companies participating in The Ignition Project and saw many promising opportunities,” said Brian Patrick Cork, cultural architect at Human Capital. “The event showcased for us the level of entrepreneurism in Atlanta while also providing an excellent forum for companies looking to gain exposure and network with investors.”
“The event was a great way to forge relationships within the investment community as well as with business leaders with invaluable in-the-trenches experience,” said Adam Houtman, founder and CEO of presenting company Vault, which received considerable audience interest, including from professional athletes interested in the technology as it relates to treatment for sports-related injuries. “We were thrilled to have been chosen by the Ignition Project and recommend it for any Atlanta entrepreneur seeking guidance and capital for growth.”
About the Event
The Ignition Project joins promising entrepreneurs and accomplished angel investors for the long-term – for the lifetime of their businesses, through early stage, growth and exit – to ignite extraordinary startup success. Eligible entrepreneurs bring more than visionary ideas – they know how to execute and they’re already executing. Investors offer their brains as well as funding – they’ve founded, successfully built and sold businesses, and have the contacts and real-world expertise to transform the right early stage enterprises into profitable ventures.
