Over $4.5 billion in funding awarded to date; leading tech investment conference expands national footprint with a virtual format for its 14th annual event.
ATLANTA – September 24, 2020 – Physician 360 announced today that it has been chosen out of a record-breaking 400 applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to present at Venture Atlanta 2020. Now in its 14th year, the annual conference to be held October 21-22, pivoted to a fully virtual format, Venture Atlanta Live Online. One of the nation’s best venture capital conferences continues to showcase innovators from the US’ hottest tech markets and boosts its largest number of selected companies and represented investor funds to date. Even in light of COVID-19, Venture Atlanta continues to fuel capital and growth, serving the needs of the region’s vibrant tech community.
“We’re excited to be part of the 2020 Venture Atlanta conference,” described Angela Fusaro MD, CEO of Physician 360. “Physician 360, along with the rest of the world, has had an unusual year during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, our business is uniquely positioned to help our independent pharmacy partners support their communities during this global crisis by delivering telemedicine services and rapid testing that can help their customers safely get the diagnosis and treatment they need for a variety of conditions while reducing the burden on traditional healthcare facilities that have been overwhelmed.”
Physician 360 provides telemedicine services and rapid test kits to independent pharmacies as well as directly to patients. Telemedicine services are an affordable alternative for patients compared to Urgent Care or ‘Doc in a Box’ facilities. Pharmacies can better serve their communities by becoming a one-stop-shop for care by offering telemedicine services to their customers.
“Venture Atlanta has become the authority for recognizing technology innovation across the Southeast and beyond, connecting the best and brightest innovators with top-tier, national investors and other leaders in our technology ecosystem that helps drive success and results with over $4.5 billion in funding awarded to date,” said Venture Atlanta CEO Allyson Eman. “This year, we’ve pivoted to a digital format to best serve the needs of our vibrant tech community and are thrilled to be showcasing our largest line up of companies ever. These companies reflect our incredible pool of talented people, inspiring innovation, and continued opportunities for growth within the technology community.”
Venture Atlanta Live Online will offer an unparalleled experience that streams two days of immersive events and interactive networking opportunities. Attendees will be able to connect with others at the conference, set up one-on-one meetings, stroll the virtual show floor, watch pitches in real-time, and use features like live chat, and audience polling. Atlanta-based independent investment management firm, Invesco, is this year’s premier sponsor, with Cherry Bekaert, Nelson Mullins and Truist as additional headline sponsors. Venture Atlanta Live Online will conclude with TechSquare Labs’ Atlanta Startup Battle, in which the top five companies will pitch on stage against one another to win a $100,000 investment.
