StartupLounge is proud to support and sponsor Startup Spring Fling 2012! Friday, May 4th, 4:30-10:30, Avondale Estates.
The name of the game here is FUN and OPEN. We’re roping off several blocks of Avondale Estates for our own devices. We’ve got games, live music, craft beer and food trucks! Even a dunking booth!
There’s no application process. Just sign up, pay up ($10 for two drinks and two food items) and show up. Oh and yes, a number of investor-types are planning on showing up. This is a great way to meet established and new folks in the Atlanta venture scene in the ultimate laid-back environment.
The beer garden opens at 4:30 and the music starts at 5:30 at Bart Webb Studios.
See you at the party!

Entrepreneurs: apply here
Investors: apply here
The second StartupLounge in Savannah will take place September 15th, 6.00pm-8.00pm.The best and brightest entrepreneurs in the Creative Coast will gather for an intimate albeit engaging evening of “face time” with investors from Georgia and the Southeast. The purpose with the event is to improve the capital environment for early stage companies with high growth potential in the region.
This is not a venue to deliver your elevator speech openly to a crowd of investors. This is an event where investors and early stage entrepreneurs can meet one-on-one without fear for being hassled by service providers, annoyed by amateur brokers, or interrupted by job-seekers.
The event is entirely free of charge to all attendees, and is paid for by selected sponsors who identify with and support the StartupLounge mission.
What we are looking for from Entrepreneurs/startups are:
1. Must have a product/service at least beta-ready
2. The entrepreneur must have an actual company
3. The company should have the growth potential to reach $50 million in revenue in 5-7 years
4. The venture should be the applicant’s primary job
How to apply to participate
Entrepreneurs who would like to participate should fill in the Entrepreneur Application Form by September 1. StartupLounge will select the 35 entrepreneurs with the most innovative ideas to participate by September 7th. These entrepreneurs will be informed where the event will take place in Savannah.
Investors (business angels, VCs) who would like to participate should fill out the Investor Application Form by September 7th. StartupLounge will inform these investors where the event will take place in Savannah and also send them information about the entrepreneurs who are selected to participate.
One of the questions we’re frequently asked is how & where to find co-founders. The gang at StartAtlanta has put together an event to help you – Co-Founder Speed Dating. It’s taking place on May 18th and you must apply to attend and pay a $25 registration fee. StartAtlanta did a great job with their last event in January and we’re excited to see what they can do with this.
