Ultimate Directory of Investors for Atlanta Startups

This is a searchable directory of investors who invest in Atlanta based startups.


Be careful filtering by “industry” because most investors don’t do the best job describing their industry specialties using common terms.  Some don’t list anything at all (which means if you start picking industries their name won’t even come up).  Only 2 specified “Industry Agnostic” but we did not apply that to others who left “industry” blank.



We have the same problem with Investment Stage were some investors self-describe as “early stage.”  What does that mean?  Seed?  Series A?  When in doubt, select several or none at all.



Number of investments is worldwide, not in the Atlanta area.  That means Y-Combinator might be at the top of the list, but in truth they invest very infrequently in Atlanta based startups.



ATDC and Atlanta Tech Village are not listed because they help founders get investments, but do not invest directly.  If we ever do an accelerator or incubator directory you can rest assured they will be on the list at the very top!



It does load a bit slow.  There are some tweaks to the UI we need to make and hopefully later I can add a “Search” feature.  Meanwhile, if you see any errors, please let me know.
