Atlanta’s Startup Community Brimming With Early Stage Capital

For years, one of the biggest knocks on Atlanta’s startup community was the dearth of early stage capital. Capital is hard to come by outside the money-center regions in the country, but people assumed most big city startup communities still had enough. This was not the case, especially for Atlanta, which has a vibrant startup scene.

With last week’s announcement that Tech Square Ventures just closed on the first $26 million of their new $75 million fund, it dawned on me that Atlanta now has a respectable amount of early stage capital. Finally. With so many funded startups (see Crunchbase Atlanta), and most of the funding come from outside the region, I was optimistic we’d develop local venture funds.

  1. Hi David, please also don’t forget Johnson Venture Partners (JVP), which recently relocated its headquarters to Atlanta. JVP is a micro VC fund focused on pre-seed, seed, and Series A investments. Very exciting times here in Atlanta and across the southeast. Best regards, Bob Cramer, Venture Partner, Johnson Venture Partners
