ATLANTA – September 20, 2022 – Coginiti announced today that it has been chosen out of a record-breaking 450-plus applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to present at Venture Atlanta FORWARD 2022 to be held October 19-20. For 15 years, the annual conference has been selecting the most promising tech companies and bringing in the top investment firms from across the nation to hear them pitch. Venture Atlanta has helped launch more than 700 companies and raise $6.5 billion in funding to date, spinning out $17 billion in successful exits.
“Coginiti is honored to be one of the few selected companies to present at Venture Atlanta”, said Rick Hall, Founder and CEO of Coginiti. “The conference is an incredible opportunity to build new relationships with investors and companies across the Southeast. We’re excited to present Coginiti’s unique Collaborative Intelligence platform, a new way to empower enterprise employees to answer business questions faster by democratizing data and analytics.”
With the never-ending demand for data and analytics, Coginiti is helping enterprises respond to the dynamic needs of enterprises that a centralized data environment cannot provide. Coginiti works with companies to implement a set of practices to democratize access to data, foster collaboration between engineering and business teams, and support building, sharing, and curating data and analytic assets. The company’s approach drastically improves productivity, improves results, and reduces costs.
As in previous years, Venture Atlanta FORWARD 2022 is anticipated to be a sold-out event, with over 1,200 entrepreneurs, founders, investors, and business leaders expected to be in attendance. A new venue for this year’s Venture Atlanta—the Woodruff Arts Center at 1280 Peachtree Street—reflects the growing intersection of art and technology.
“Venture Atlanta has established itself as the authority for recognizing technology innovation across the Southeast and beyond, connecting the best and brightest innovators with top-tier, national investors and other leaders in the tech ecosystem,” said Venture Atlanta CEO Allyson Eman. “We again set a new record with nearly 500 applicants for Venture Atlanta Forward 2022—it’s our most competitive year yet in terms of presenter quality. With an impressive slate of 87 presenting and showcase companies, a record number of sponsors, and a brand-new venue, we’re continuing to raise the bar for what will be our 15th anniversary event.”
