RAISE Forum Launches to Fund Post-Revenue Startups in the Southeast

August 17, 2015


Emory-Sponsored Event Matches Investors and Startups Seeking Funding between $1 Million and $5 Million


ATLANTA (August, 17, 2015)  The Southeast has a history of innovation, and though Atlanta 

consistently tops the list when it comes to entrepreneurship, there is a notable lack of investment in 

locally-grown startups that are post-revenue. RAISE (Retention and Advanced Investment for the 

Southeast at Emory) Forum, presented by Emory University’s Goizueta Business School, is scheduled for 

November 6 in Atlanta at Emory University. This event, which has a healthcare bias, is the first of its kind 

to bring together startups and investors from across the Southeast with the goal of closing the region’s 

funding gap and providing new and strategic investment opportunities to a broader pool of startups.


Call for Startups


The Forum is accepting applications from post-revenue startups based in the Southeast (Georgia, 

Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina) that are seeking funding between $1 

million and $5 million. Eight to 10 startups will be selected to present to active investors at the 

November event. To be considered as a presenting startup, the company must agree to remain in the 

Southeast for five years, as well as participate in a six-week training course which will prepare applicants 

for investor presentations. 


“We are deeply committed to helping startups grow in Atlanta and across the Southeastern U.S.,” says 

Charlie Goetz, Distinguished Lecturer at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. “RAISE Forum 

nurtures investment in business, but also across the region as a whole.”
