Venture Atlanta is a premier technology investment conference that showcases the Southeast’s most promising technology companies
ATLANTA — September 14, 2017 — Saige Personal Chefs announced today that it has been selected to present at Venture Atlanta 2017, the Southeast’s premier event for connecting technology innovation and investment capital. The 10th annual Venture Atlanta will be held October 11–12 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta and will feature close to 150 funds from across the country. With more than 900 investors, tech entrepreneurs and executives anticipated to be in attendance, this year’s Venture Atlanta is once again lining up to be a sold-out event.
Adding to the Venture Atlanta excitement are Mark Cuban, chairman and CEO of AXS TV and one of the “sharks” on ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank, and Ernie Garcia, CEO of Carvana, who will deliver keynote presentations.
Saige was chosen as one of 35 companies from a large pool of applicants that represent the region’s most innovative tech businesses. Saige uses a combination of machine learning and chef expertise to pair individuals with meals completely customized to them based on their dietary needs and taste preferences. Saige puts the utmost thought and care into the entire process by doing research into every meal prepared by the Saige Chefs and connecting customers with a concierge team who hand-picks each individual’s meals. Saige takes pride and accountability in every step, so your meals are prepared, packaged and delivered fresh by Saige without any third parties involved. Every part of this experience is done with the customer in mind by encouraging open communication just as if you had a personal chef in your home.
“Through the years, Venture Atlanta has earned a reputation for consistently identifying tomorrow’s cutting-edge technologies while helping to launch over 380 companies and secure over $2 billion in funding,” said Allyson Eman, executive director of Venture Atlanta. “This year’s event marks our 10th anniversary and includes the strongest and largest roster yet of both early and venture-stage companies — showcasing the depth, breadth and opportunity within the region’s technology community.”
During the two-day event, presenting companies and conference attendees will engage with regional as well as national venture capitalists, investors and other key players in the current technology ecosystem. The conference results in funding, national investor exposure, invaluable relationship building and mentoring by successful technology executives. The conference will also, for the first time, include 16 Startup Showcase companies that will share their plans and vision for the future as “companies to watch.”
