TAG-Business-Launch-Logo-Color-12-12-14-e1421188462225I’m looking forward to being a judge in the finals of the TAG Biz Launch Competition 2016, in Atlanta.

Fifteen finalists will pitch their businesses in front of a live audience and live judges panel. The finalists will be competing for a $50,000 prize pool and over $350,000 in suite of services.

The finale of the Biz Launch Competition 2016 will be open to the public (register here to attend). In partnership with the Technology Association of Georgia, Venture Atlanta, and Metro Atlanta Chamber.

This will be my eighth year judging the competition. I love seeing the variety of startups in Georgia. And enjoy learning from the perspective of the other judges.

Past winners and participating companies include Pindrop Security (investors include a16z), Monsieur, Techturized, Salesloft, and Rigor.

With an impressive lineup of startups pitching in the 2016 competition, it should be an interesting and engaging event.
