Now in its 16th year, Venture Atlanta has helped launch more than 760 companies and raise $7.5 billion in funding to date
ATLANTA, Oct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ReRent, the Airbnb-done-for-you platform, announced today that it was chosen to present at Venture Atlanta 2023 as one of the top 10 seed stage tech companies in the Southeast. A record-breaking 550 companies applied to present at the conference, held September 27-28 at the Woodruff Arts Center and Atlanta Symphony Hall.
For the past 16 years, Venture Atlanta has selected the most promising tech companies and brought in top investment firms from across the nation to hear them pitch. Venture Atlanta has helped launch more than 760 companies and raise $7.5 billion in funding to date, spinning out $17 billion in successful exits.
“We were excited to present at Venture Atlanta and highlight the enormous new opportunity our platform provides for renters to live with more freedom and flexibility,” said ReRent CEO, Alikiah Barclay. “Millions of apartment residents leave behind an empty place whenever they travel, wasting money paying rent for a space they aren’t using.”
“With ReRent, apartment residents can now effortlessly make that money back. Our on-demand management platform will ‘Airbnb’ your apartment for you, remotely handling the hosting responsibilities while coordinating with the building’s team. While many building owners didn’t allow residents to Airbnb their apartments before, many now understand that with the right guardrails in place, it can be a win-win for them and their tenants.”
Venture Atlanta 2023 was a sold-out event with over 1,400 entrepreneurs, founders, investors, and business leaders in attendance. “This year, we’ve also reimagined our schedule to give more stage time to promising tech companies,” said Venture Atlanta CEO Allyson Eman.
ReRent is an on-demand property management platform that the everyday consumer can leverage to passively monetize their most valuable assets when they're not using them. ReRent has begun by helping travelers passively rent out the apartments they leave behind while they are away by leveraging platforms like Airbnb/VRBO and partnering with apartment buildings. ReRent has returned over $150K to tenants and has been recognized by Techstars, Afrotech, Dorm Room Fund, Harlem Capital, Connecticut Innovations, and Yale University.
