3rd Annual TiE Top Entrepreneur awards

3rd Annual TiE Top Entrepreneur awards

The event recognizes Atlanta startups and companies that have generated a minimum revenue of $1 million and no more than $100 million. The awards are based on revenue growth, profitability, sustainability, leadership, culture and innovation. Last year’s event included more than 400 attendees and 21 Entrepreneur Awards were presented. The piece de resistance was a fireside chat with Dr. Sanjay Gupta interviewing Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Jeff Arnold (e.g., WebMD, How Stuff Works, ShareCare). If you’re looking to connect with C-Level executives, business professionals across industries and Atlanta's most innovative entrepreneurs— THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! Additionally, our keynote this year will be Jennifer Van Buskirkfrom AT&T.

This event is SOLD OUT! Please email amyn@tie-atlanta.org to be placed on the wait list. Due to being at capacity, we can not accommodate walk-ins for this event. 

It's almost time for our annual TiE Atlanta Top Entrepreneur's Awards Breakfast, and we'll be recognizing the top entrepreneurs in the metro this year on September 27 at the Buckhead Club! 

You may have noticed we've been collecting nominations for a little more than a month now, and we've moved into phase two-- the interviews. This event has become one of our absolute favorite events of the year, and we couldn't be more thrilled to share it with the TiE Atlanta community in September.  

We love our TiE Atlanta Top Entrepreneur festivities because they so perfectly encapsulate our dedication to working with entrepreneurs, business owners and privately held companies. We're proud to share this entrepreneurial spirit with our Program Partner Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, premier sponsor Navidar, sponsor Kennesaw State University Coles College of Business and MarComm Partner Mer-itocracy Creative, Inc.

We're also proud to announce the TiE Atlanta Top Entrepreneur's Awards Breakfast keynote speaker and panelists. Our keynote speaker (and a panel member), AT&T Entertainment Group's Jennifer Van Buskirk is a powerhouse female executive in tech who repeatedly has been recognized has one of the most influential women working in wireless and technology today. 

The panel will be covering the topic of first hires and company culture. Get ready for a spirited discussion around the importance of those first hires to your lasting company culture. You're sure to get a behind the scenes look at successes, failures and strategic retrospective takeaways in first hire experiences to help you hire better and be a good steward of your company culture.
