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 – ThinkGenetic, Inc. 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 being held on October 20-21. For 14 years, the annual conference has been selecting the most promising tech companies and bringing in top investment firms from across the nation to hear them pitch. The annual conference has helped launch more than 500 companies and raise $6.5 billion in funding to date, serving the needs of the region’s vibrant tech community.
“When you are so ridiculously excited and proud of a solution that harnesses technology and big data to help shorten the diagnostic journey for those with an underlying genetic condition,” explains ThinkGenetic co-founder and Chief Genetic Officer, Dawn Jacob Laney, MS, CGC, CCRC, “it is very exciting to be selected to present it to a group of savvy investors interested in finding and supporting innovations like ours.”
ThinkGenetic is focused on undiagnosed patient identification with a mission of shortening the diagnostic journey for those with an underlying genetic condition. Through partnerships with healthcare systems and using their validated proprietary algorithms, ThinkGenetic solution, FindEHR TM, identifies at-risk patients using Electronic Healthcare Records. Those records are flagged and healthcare providers are notified, educated, and provided resources to support critical healthcare decisions. The number of companies working in the development of genetic-based therapies is exponentially growing and with thousands of identified genetic conditions, access to life-altering therapies and clinical trials are expanding daily.
“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.
