"The Mayor’s Office of International Affairs and Invest Atlanta not only organized the demo day with a qualified audience, but also introduced us to the heart of innovation in Atlanta.”
- Yann Bruner, Co-founder & CEO, Donecle.

2018 Startup Exchange

In 2016, the Mayor’s Office of International Affairs and Invest Atlanta launched the first Atlanta International Startup Exchange—a one-week international residency program that provides selected companies a platform for global expansion through connections with potential partners, investors, and clients. Since, the program has enabled 14 startups to land new contracts with Global Fortune 500 Companies, secure several IoT pilot projects, and establish new partnership with industry leaders from across the globe.

The 2018 Startup Exchange will provide startups the platform to expand their global reach through a one-week international residency in Toulouse, France and Atlanta, United States. 

During the Startup Exchange, startups will attend a leading innovation and tech conference in the host ecosystem. Past conferences have included Venture Atlanta and EmTech Europe. Startups learn about market opportunities and the resources available to support startup expansion. They also have chance to meet with regional decision makers and pitch to potential investors, partners, and clients. 

Participants receive round-trip airfare, accommodations, dedicated co-working space, conference and event registration, and ground transportation for one startup representative.
