+ Supply Chain
+ Fleet Management
+ Logistic Services Automation
+ Precision Marketing and Mix Modeling
+ AdTech and Media (specifically video, digital-enabled physical, AR/VR consumer experiences)
+ E-commerce (specifically technologies that anticipate the merging of B2B and B2C)
+ Back Office Automation
+ Big Data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
+ Sustainability
+ Photo Recognition
+ Blockchain (specifically financial services contracts or any solution that helps a corporate unlock a new revenue stream)
+ Cybersecurity (specifically endpoint protection, awareness and preparedness)
+ FinTech (specifically Cryptocurrency)


The program only requires a commitment of 2 hours per week from one person on the startup team. No equity or IP taken or cash given to startups.

This is an Atlanta based program. We cover the cost of travel for startups (budget permitting) and there isn't too much required in-person time (a week of educational workshops in May, Corporate Connect Days in June and our Demo Day on Oct 18). Of the 22 startups in the 2017 program, 10 were from outside of ATL. We're open to startups that are a relatively quick flight away.
