I first did this type of post last month and some received positive feedback. So here we go again. Even though it is July lots going on. And since we are celebrating freedom this month I thought it would be good to talk a bit about (mostly) free things.

Knox Massey of the Atlanta Technology Angels is putting on a short program to help Georgia based entrepreneurs understand the basics of angel investing—from an investors viewpoint. These are taking place on July 8 and 23 from 12 – 2. You can learn more here. Free.

September 29th and concludes with an investor forum and a shot at
getting involved with Venture Atlanta. Not Free.
Atlanta CEO Council
