Atlanta Startup Ecosystem

Atlanta has come a long way since the dot com bubble burst in the early 2000s. It’s now become a vibrant center for startup activity, with VC investments exceeding $1 billion. 

As well giants such as Mailchimp, Convoy, and AptAmigo, a significant number of unicorns have also come out of the city. For example, Fintech startup Greenlight, software giant Salesloft and supply chain software STORD. 

The diversity of industries present in Atlanta makes the startup ecosystem unique. Another defining factor for the Atlanta startup ecosystem is the number of black entrepreneurs and investors. In Atlanta, 25% of tech industry employees are black compared to 6% in San Francisco. 

Plenty of public and private schools in the region, such as The University of Alabama, the University of Georgia, and Georgia Tech, are producing the entrepreneurial talent driving Atlanta’s booming startup scene. Microsoft and Apple recently opened offices in the city to make the most of the tech talent pool. Georgia Tech produces the highest number of tech graduates per year in the US. 

Dozens of accelerators and incubators are now present in Atlanta to support the growing number of founders. The incubator ‘Advanced Technology Development Center’ is one of the city’s most prominent programs that support entrepreneurs and founders. The pre-accelerator Atlanta Tech Village focuses on helping women and people of color who are past the idea stage and have raised less than $150k.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
