June 12th was a very special Booth 61. This was our first show with out of town guests. My good friend for the past 2 years and the Founder of Four Athens and the Four Athens Angel Fund brought one of the companies currently in the Four Athens space. Athens, Georgia is on fire with new technology and a new Angel Fund. Jim Flannery is one of the most interesting people I have met since I began making Athens my weekend home this past two years. Jim has a pulse on all things entrepreneurial in Athens and he has built a solid team of investors, board members, and advisers. I met Art for the first time on the 12th and later served Art and his family a delicious Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt at AthFest in beautiful downtown Athens. Art and his partner have created a unique technology which will help schools create a more favorable climate for success. Their company could be a change agent in the education system in Georgia and across the world.
You will be amazed to hear Jim and Art share great stories from the Classic City, Athens, Georgia. UGA and the entrepreneurial Eco-system in Athens will be something the State will be hearing more about in the very near future. You will have the inside scoop ahead of the pack.
Thank you Jim and Art for driving down and spending an hour sharing your wisdom, insight, and wit. It was a blessing having you in the studio.
