Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
An Atlanta start-up is confident that usable mobility data will sound like music to the ears of venture capitalists and technology investors gathering in the ATL later this month. AirSage™—a company that uses proprietary technology to collect anonymous signaling data from mobile devices for the purpose of analyzing consumer location movement and behavior patterns—has been chosen as a “Venture Spotlight Company” for the upcoming Venture Atlanta conference.
“There is no one else in the U.S. who can do what we do, so this is an incredible opportunity for us to capture the attention of investors who want to be a part of something new and powerful,” said Cy Smith, founder and CEO of AirSage, an Atlanta-based company that is privately held by high net worth investors and management. “AirSage is able to provide unprecedented insight into where U.S. consumers are located and how they move,” Smith explained.
Founded in 2000, AirSage uses a patented population analytics platform to capture anonymous wireless signals from over 100 million mobile devices. The company turns the collected data into meaningful and actionable information that can be used to model and evaluate the movement and flow of commuters and consumers. (See how it works here: http://www.airsage.com/Technology/How-It-Works/.) Businesses using AirSage data enjoy vastly better customer insights compared to other solutions, which can be more limited, expensive and time consuming to collect.
“AirSage is uniquely positioned to bring the power of where and when people move to businesses looking for transportation and logistics planning data, marketing and equity research insights, insurance analytics, real-estate site selection, emergency management, and more.” said Smith. “We analyze more than 15 billion population location and movement data points that are derived and stored every day, 24 hours a day, and turn that into valuable, relevant intelligence that has a positive ROI.”
AirSage is one of just 40 “venture spotlight companies” chosen to make formal presentations to hundreds of potential investors during the Venture Atlanta conference Oct. 17-18, 2012 at the Georgia Aquarium. Companies presenting as part of the conference, as well as attendees, will have opportunities to network with regional and national venture capitalists and investors during the two-day event.
“Venture Atlanta companies are the best of the best selected from hundreds of applicants,” said David Cummings, CEO of Pardot and Venture Atlanta board member. “Venture Atlanta presenters are the most promising Georgia-based companies and have a track record of success.”
The annual non-profit event is a collaboration of three leading Georgia business organizations: Atlanta CEO Council, Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG). Since 2002, the investor event has assisted companies in raising more than $930 million.
