May 13th, 2013 the Atlanta CEO Council held it’s most recent gathering. Another All Star crowd of Atlanta and beyond technology superstars visited the Ritz Carlton Buckhead for the best Lamb Chops on Planet Earth. For almost 15 years the Atlanta CEO Council has created an environment where new relationships are created and deals get done. Over 150 technology entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, professional services providers, and other VIP’s gather to do business.
This month’s program began with a presentation by Russ Clark and Matt Sanders from Georgia Tech about the project/research/commercial viability of Magic Window. After the informative presentation, everyone moved into the reception where Booth 61 was able to interview a handful of the guests. There was a lot of energy in the room and I personally wish I could have interviewed twenty more of these fine folks.
It was an honor for my long time friend and former boss, Michael Kogon joined me early in the evening. I joined the Board of Directors of Definition 6 in 2000 or 2001 and served on the Board until joining the company full time in 2007 as the Chief Development Officer. I learned a lot of great lessons from Michael and I know I am a smarter person for having served with him over the years.
