Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Lightshed Health today announced that it has been selected as a presenter at Venture Atlanta 2013, Georgia’s premier event connecting technology innovation and investment capital, to be held October 22-23 at the Georgia Aquarium. Lightshed Health was one of 32 presenting companies selected. Both the early and later stage companies chosen reflect a wide range of technologies across diverse markets and highlight the innovation of Georgia businesses.
Lightshed’s UrgentQ product addresses the number one patient satisfaction issue in healthcare: waiting to be seen by a provider. UrgentQ enables patients to sign in online, hold their place in line, and minimize time spent in the waiting room.
“Lightshed Health is pleased to be selected to present at Venture Atlanta,” said Michael Burke, founder and CEO. “The opportunity to showcase our solution and establish connections in the business community is unequaled in the region.”
Both presenting companies and conference attendees will have opportunities to network with regional and national venture capitalists and investors during the two-day event. Now entering its 13th year, Venture Atlanta has been instrumental in helping companies raise over $1 billion to-date. The conference provides an invaluable experience for entrepreneurs, resulting in funding, national investor exposure and mentoring from successful technology executives.
“Venture Atlanta continues to draw attention to Georgia’s start-up activity,” said Melanie Leeth, vice president of Imlay Investments and Venture Atlanta board member. “The 32 presenting early and later stage companies highlight the strength of Georgia businesses and the robust technology community.”
