Atlanta Tech Leaders Radio Spotlights Startup Riot

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 26, 2015) - Co-hosts Lee Kantor and Stone Payton featured a special edition of Atlanta Tech Leaders to spotlight the upcoming Startup Riot in Atlanta. Founder Sanjay Parekh was joined by Patrick Braswell with RealNex, Spencer Barkoff with Campus Bubble and Rob Kischuk with PerfectPost to discuss the event.

Happening March 4, 2015 at Terminal West in Atlanta, Startup Riot is an all-day event which highlights 30 startups through three-minute, four-slide presentations given by the startups. The startups subsequently answer questions from a judging panel for three minutes.

"When this event started several years ago, we needed a way to help entrepreneurs with something that was not around for me when I was doing my startup," explained Parekh. "It was my goal to do something to help them out and that's where I came up with the three-minute, four-slide idea and doing a conference all around that."

Startup Riot is open to all investors, entrepreneurs, and companies looking for partnerships and/or mergers and acquisitions opportunities. Also welcome are individuals representing government, academic, and non-profit organizations that support or seek to support entrepreneurs.

Joining in the conversation were three alumni of previous Startup Riot events: Patrick Braswell, co-founder of Ten Eight, which was purchased by RealNex in 2014, Rob Kischuk, founder of PerfectPost, a social media optimization platform for small and midsize businesses, and Spencer Barkoff, CEO of Campus Bubble, providing private social networks for universities.

Startup Riot is a part of Refresh South -- a week long celebration of startups, technology, arts, music, business, and education. There are large events and small events happening the entire week.
