Editor's note: The following post is part of a partnership with Creative Influence about marketing innovation happening in industries across Atlanta. The article is part of our Marketing Next series, which tackles both the marketing of innovation and the innovation of marketing. It publishes twice a month. To get a pulse of Atlanta's current MarTech ecosystem, we checked in with a dozen of the city's experts in the field. From MarTech customers to category creators, capital providers to catalysts and consultants, they provide a snapshot of a market that's matured and poised for a new level of growth. Atlanta's ability to make good on aspirations of MarTech dominance may just be for real. But it will take three conditions to realize full potential: continuity, reinvestment and integration. In Part 1 of this series, we took a look at CMOs as buyers and how Atlanta MarTech creators need to improve continuity and sales/marketing integration to win. Still, with 8,000-plus MarTech

This February, Austin's beloved Startup Games rolled out a new name and a refreshed ethos; Catalyst Games, where companies could continue to come together in friendly competition with a renewed commitment to supporting their nonprofit partners and community. The program kicked off the year strong. The Austin season in January brought together 36 companies to donate $120,000 to our partner nonprofits and 3,600+ health kits to Austin Resource Center for the Homeless. Already, Catalyst Games was breathing fresh air into a landscape of corporate social responsibility - or CSR - that can sometimes feel stale or routine. The games were set for the rest of the season, and the Catalyst Games team was ready to deploy to Denver in the spring and Atlanta in the fall. Then COVID-19 hit. What a time to be the new CEO of an event-driven program. As the dust was seemingly settling in April, we spoke to most of our stakeholders to understand the challenges they were facing and a few trends emerged.

For Chowbus, that meant building a food-delivery business that finds restaurants whose cuisines specialize in regional cuisines from Northern and Southern China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. It's a strategy [...]

We've all been there: you're at a red light for what feels like eternity, wondering if you have time to type out a quick text message or rummage through your glove compartment before the light turns green. Or you turn down a road in a city you've never visited, unaware of the speed limit. Or you drive toward a stop light, only to slam on your brakes as it turns red. With the latest Tampa app launch, these small inconveniences could become a thing of the past. CēVē, a Tampa-based transportation technology company, has officially launched its app this week after originally starting in an Atlanta pitch competition in Nov. 2019. Its founder, David Aylesworth, got the call to participate from a friend who knew he was interested in the transportation sector. "It was just a chance opportunity," Aylesworth said. "I knew someone in Atlanta that worked in transportation and when it came up, he told me about it. We threw an app together in a week." Originally working in the defense industry with

Two Atlanta-based organizations known for assisting underrepresented founders have joined forces to raise the stakes for women founders. Launchpad2X, a founder-to-CEO accelerator program for women entrepreneurs, announced a partnership with Zane Venture Fund, a $10 million fund created to support founders with diverse teams. According to LaunchPad2X President Christy Brown, who joined the organization in May, the partnership is designed to provide capital for LP2X companies and bring candidates to Zane for funding.

The relationship happened organically, thanks to a professional relationship between Atlanta angel investor and Zane Ventures partner Sig Mosley and LaunchPad2X founder Bernie Dixon.
