At long last, Southside Startup Summit is here. The first of its kind in south Metro Atlanta, this half-day forum will feature innovative leaders from the Metro Atlanta area providing southside entrepreneurs with insights and information on launching and expanding high-growth and creative businesses.
Cliff Oxford, founder and CEO of the Oxford Institute for Entrepreneurs, is the first speaker of the day. This New York Times blogger focuses on fast-growth companies with content that bridges the gap between Harvard and "hard knocks.” Following Oxford are two tracks, tech and creative, featuring two sessions with lessons and tips from local emerging businesses. The closing speaker is John Yates, the partner in charge of the technology practice at Morris, Manning & Martin LLP. He has helped hundreds of technology companies launch and grow. The day will wrap up with a happy hour (or two) to celebrate the day.
Southside Startup Summit is April 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Crown Plaza Atlanta SW – Peachtree City.
