Non-profit Startup Atlanta launched a new website today, startupatlanta.org, to connect, support and expand the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the metro Atlanta region. Founded in May 2013, Startup Atlanta is backed by Atlanta Technology Angels, Entrepreneurs’ Organization, Invest Atlanta and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

“Great ideas come out of Atlanta. We have talented, smart people generating world-changing ideas here, with outstanding resources to support them,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. “Startup Atlanta’s online hub will help us highlight the many opportunities and successes for entrepreneurs and innovators in our region.”

The new website features a resource map, interactive events calendar and a blog, which will showcase best practices and ideas from well-known Atlanta entrepreneurs and thought leaders. It also includes Atlanta’s startup deal flow, outlining angel investments and venture capital that support promising area companies.

“Perhaps the most exciting aspect of our website is its ability to showcase the name and logo of every startup in metro Atlanta,” said Bess Weyandt, Startup Atlanta’s executive director. “Through our connection to Angel List, we have the capability to import information about every local startup and feature each company in one central location.”
