Over $4.5 billion in funding awarded to date; leading tech investment conference expands national footprint with virtual format for its 14th annual event
“Bricz announced today that it has been chosen out of a record-breaking 400 applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to present at Venture Atlanta 2020. Now in its 14th year, the annual conference to be held October 21-22, pivoted to a fully virtual format, Venture Atlanta Live Online. One of the nation’s best venture capital conferences continues to showcase innovators from the US’ hottest tech markets and boosts its largest number of selected companies and represented investor funds to date. Even in light of COVID-19, Venture Atlanta continues to fuel capital and growth, serving the needs of the region’s vibrant tech community.
“Venture Atlanta goes beyond connecting companies to capital. Their resources, reach and ecosystem are invaluable to companies in the Southeast and we cannot have asked for a better platform to tell our story and find the right financial partner for our journey,” said Bricz CEO Ram Gopalakrishnan.
At Bricz, we wake up to solve complex retail supply chain problems. Our technology allows sellers and third-party logistics providers to place the right product assortment, closer to the ever expanding digital customer base. By combining demand-sensing, customer preferences, and inventory position, our predictive AI/ML engine makes inventory placement recommendations that result in improved average sales price, and increased speed of delivery to customer, without the exorbitant last-mile delivery cost or the cost of carrying too much inventory.
In a post-pandemic world, as sellers evaluate how to leverage their network of distribution centers, stores, third-party locations, metro or urban centers, pop-up centers and backrooms in order to offer tailored pick-up and delivery options for their digital customer, we provide the science for such decisions by optimizing their middle-mile costs and placing the right product, at the right place, and at the right time, prior to a customer order.
“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 technology ecosystem that helps drive success and results with over $4.5 billion in funding awarded to date,” said Venture Atlanta CEO Allyson Eman. “This year, we’ve pivoted to a digital format to best serve the needs of our vibrant tech community and are thrilled to be showcasing our largest line up of companies ever. These companies reflect our incredible pool of talented people, inspiring innovation, and continued opportunities for growth within the technology community.”
Venture Atlanta Live Online will offer an unparalleled experience that streams two days of immersive events and interactive networking opportunities. Attendees will be able to 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. Atlanta-based independent investment management firm, Invesco, is this year’s premier sponsor, with Cherry Bekaert, Nelson Mullins and Truist as additional headline sponsors. Venture Atlanta Live Online will conclude with TechSquare Labs’ Atlanta Startup Battle, in which top five companies will pitch on stage against one another to win a $100,000 investment.
