In what has become something of a tradition, we’re working with our friends Ed and Wendy at 151 Locust in Avondale Estates to bring you another rock ‘em sock ‘em “live” StartupLounge podcast this holiday season. Our guest will be Joe Gruca of Toomah, an Atlanta startup and winners of the TAG/GRE Business Launch contest. Joe has an interesting story and we’re excited to talk to him about his startup and his journeys. 151 Locust is providing refreshments (thanks Ed!) so come and enjoy Festivus with the rest of us. (feats of strength TBA)

UGA – TI:GER Pitch-Off
Mon, Nov 29 4:30-7:30pm @ Hodges Room at the ATDC
Can’t make it to the Georgia – Georgia Tech football game? Well, you have an opportunity to cheer your favorite “pitch” to victory (and cash prizes) at the UGA – TI:GER Pitch-Off on Mon, Nov 29 5-7:30pm @ the Hodges Room at the ATDC. Hear students from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business Entrepreneurship Program and TI:GER (Georgia Tech and Emory University’s collaborative entrepreneur program) pitch their businesses. Each presenter has 3 minutes to present their product or business in front of a panel of judges (Mike Blake, Scott Burkett, and Jerry Recht). The winners get $1500 in cash prizes donated by StartupLounge and Jerry Recht. Good field research for those applying to StartupRiot early next year.
