In its first year, the awards will honor startups and entrepreneurs in the following eight categories:

  • The Art of the Pivot
  • Scrappiest Startup
  • Top Community Builder

“The Atlanta startup ecosystem has steadily grown to become not only a bright star in our local business community, but a top ten city for startups in the entire country,” said Charlton Cunningham, Executive Director of Startup Atlanta. “We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the great work happening in our city for what we hope will be the beginning of a tradition for years to come.”

Nominee qualifications, as well as the submission forms, can be found on the Atlanta Startup Awards website. This year’s finalists will be recognized at a ceremony at The Gathering Spot on May 12.
