Two weeks ago I was asked by The Atlanta Business Chronicle to identify tech trends in Atlanta in 2011. I provided six. The first one is below.
1. Liquidity events return.
- A few companies could see significant exits via acquisitions or IPOs (Silverpop, SecureWorks, Vendormate)
- Many smaller firms will be acquired by larger corporations looking to use cash hoard to increase revenue as economy rebounds
- Founders/executives will start to create/look for next opportunities which in general will strengthen the Atlanta startup scene
Two business days two deals. The year is starting off with a bang.
