Community Partners

The Ritz Group mission is to pro-actively promote the State of Georgia entrepreneurial eco-system and ALL organizations, accelerators, incubators and universities providing products and services to entrepreneurs.  
To foster this engagement the Ritz Group has four  active programs.   They are as follows: 

1.    The Ritz Group is an active member of the ATDC Community Partners - where all organizations meet quarterly to discuss programs, events and coordinate calendars.    

2.    The Ritz Group is a founding sponsor  of the Georgia Brite Idea Network (GBIN) and works with community partners and Brite Idea Lab to create an Innovation Network connecting Georgia entrepreneurs and inventors to Georgia's corporations, organizations and universities.
  3.  The Ritz Group Founded the For Georgia  (4GA) Non-Profit to produce  Shark Attack for TV to create a  Crowd-Funding  market for the Georgia IGE, in addition to creating a chamber of commerce proof-item that Georgia has a thriving start-up community.   Launch and start-up funding for 4GA, as public service, is provided by corporations through the Ritz Group Sponsor Partner Program.     Shark Attack for TV is unique because it enables the viewing audience to vote, purchased consumer goods and invest in presenting companies.    Companies apply on-line via Brite Idea Lab and go through a Boot Camp to insure they are pitch-perfect, loaded correctly on the show eCommerce site and are registered correctly on the Finance Georgia IGE platform.    

4.   The Capital Expo is a multi-event virtual Trade Show that the Ritz Group is proposing to provide virtual exhibitor booths for Venture Atlanta and a new Georgia state-wide Start-Up Trade Show to be held in 2017 at the Cobb Galleria.
