The company’s cloud-based technology, BAMwire™, enables faster access to capital and reduces days to pay, improving credit scores and building stronger vendor relationships while increasing cash flow.
"BAM helps small and midsize businesses in working capital intense industries compete with their better banked and larger competitors. We give them tools and take time-consuming back-office tasks like payment processing and managing working capital off their plate," said Todd Ehrlich, CEO of BAM. "We help these owners get back to selling and operating their business - helping them grow and scale faster."
BAM was invited as one of 34 selected presenting companies that represent the region’s most innovative tech businesses. Founded in 2012, BAM has grown significantly over the last five years. The company has made four acquisitions and has been ranked among the top 25 fastest-growing companies in Atlanta by the Atlanta Business Chronicle for two consecutive years. BAM has also expanded its service offerings to include the transportation, construction, oil and gas, staffing and business services industries, in the US and Canada.
“For eleven years, Venture Atlanta has been connecting the Southeast’s best and brightest innovators with top-tier investors and other leaders in our technology ecosystem—helping to launch over 400 companies and secure over $2.6 billion in funding,” said Allyson Eman, executive director of Venture Atlanta. “This year, we’re thrilled to be showcasing the strongest and largest roster yet of both early and venture-stage companies. These companies reflect the incredible pool of talented people and continued opportunities for growth and innovation within our technology community.”
During the two-day event, presenting companies and conference attendees will engage with regional as well as national venture capitalists, investors and other key players in the current technology landscape. Atlanta technology innovation hub, Tech Square Labs, will return as the event’s premier sponsor.
