Mike Blake and I spent a few hours with Lance Weatherby of the ATDC yesterday. Enjoy the latest installment of our StartupLounge.com podcast! This is a must hear show if you are an early-stage entrepreneur in Georgia who is considering applying to the ATDC.
What is the ATDC and how does it work? What does the ATDC have in store for Georgia entrepreneurs in 2007? How can entrepreneurs get involved? What is the current early-stage/venture landscape here in Atlanta? Welcome to SL #7! In this show, we are joined by Lance Weatherby, a Venture Catalyst with Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC).
As a bonus, join us for the debut of our “Under the Bus” segment, where we feature a healthy dialog on the Atlanta early stage venture scene.
This discussion not only provided a nice overview of the inner workings of the ATDC, but also a very interesting exchange of ideas and perspectives on the Atlanta (and Georgia) early-stage venture scene. From venture capital to angel investors to traction/execution, you’ll find it all here! We even managed to drag some “sleeper picks” out of Lance – if you want some tips on a couple of hot startups, give it a listen.
