This is a call to action for all of our Atlanta contacts as well as anyone that supports small businesses and entrepreneurs. Recently Niche Video Media, along with 90 other applicants, entered a business launch competition hosted by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), Venture Atlanta and the Metro Atlanta Chamber. Of these 90 new business plans, 18 were selected as semifinalists, and Niche Video Media is one of them.
As a semifinalist, we will present our business model to a panel of judges as well as a live audience on March 18, 2014 at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. This is the first year that the semifinal event is open for the public to attend, and they are a vital part of the elimination process, as their votes will decide the fate of one fortunate start-up. Only 8 companies will move on to the finals, and while the panel of judges will select 7 of the finalists, the audience vote will determine who gets the last spot. For this reason, we need your help.
You can register to attend the semifinal event online. Bring your friends and help us spread the word to vote for Niche Video Media. The grand prize is an amazing package worth nearly $500,000 in prizes, including a $50,000 cash prize, one on one mentoring support, and a suite of services including legal and marketing help, office space, and more. Needless to say, a prize like this would be crucial in helping a new business succeed. Come to the TAG/Venture Atlanta Business Launch competition semifinal event to show your support for Niche Video Media as well as the other technology start-ups that help the Georgia economy grow.
