On Thursday, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Georgia Tech and the CEOs of ten of Atlanta’s top corporations announced the launch of Engage, an accelerator program and venture fund. Engage will be affiliated with the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), established as a technology company incubator by Georgia Tech in 1980.
Applications for startups will be available in the next few weeks and programming will start in the spring. Similar to ATDC, focus will be placed on mentoring and market access. Startups from across the country will be eligible for participation and Engage is hoping 48 startups could complete the program in the first three years.
