The holidays are upon us, believe it or not, and that means everyone is busy with gift shopping, spending time with friends and family and attending holiday parties. Atlanta startups have a lot of fun events coming up, including the SWEeT Holiday Party, SwitchPitch and Atlanta Tech Village’s Holiday Showcase.
SWEeT Holiday Party: SWEeT, which stands for Social, Web, Entrepreneurs & Tech, is a cooperation between ATDC, the Atlanta Tech Village, AWDG, Hypepotamus, StartupChicks, Pear'd and Opportunity Hub. The event will be held at RiRa Irish Pub in Midtown on Wednesday, Dec. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. A few hundred people involved in Atlanta’s ecosystem of hard-working, tech-loving movers and shakers will be in attendance. Any money made off of the event will be donated to springBoard, which is Hands On Atlanta's skills-based volunteer initiative that enlists talented business and technology professionals to provide pro-bono consulting services for nonprofit organizations. You can purchase tickets here.
SwitchPitch: SwitchPitch will make its Atlanta debut Tuesday, Dec. 9 from 1:30 to 6:30 p.m. This role-reversal event seeks to switch up the norm of startups pitching to large companies. Instead, SwitchPitch allows established companies to pitch funded innovation projects to qualified startups looking for great partners. The goal is to create relationships between established companies and startups in the Atlanta market. Register for the event here.
