The (NOT) Cotton Gin investor road show
There are about 35 tech startups in Savannah doing way more than pulling seeds out of cotton. They are solving difficult and complex problems that can change big chunks of the world with technology in medical, tele-health, primary and higher education, and gaming by deploying VR/AR, machine learning and mobile approaches.
Getting our stories to smart money investors from coastal Georgia is no small task. Five of us are organizing to conduct a virtual investor road show for west coast angel investors on Thursday, July 26, 2018 and hope you can attend.
Tech exits in Savannah
The last tech exit in Savannah was in 2002. H.O. Systems was acquired by VeriSign for a cool $340 million. Whitney's cotton gin got lost in the patent quarrels of the early 1800s, but the gin changed the economic landscape of this whole region.
