Atlanta, GA - Vū Technologies (vu.network) announced today that it has been chosen out of a record-breaking 450-plus applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to present at Venture Atlanta FORWARD 2022 to be held October 19-20. For 15 years, the annual conference has been selecting the most promising tech companies and bringing in the top investment firms from across the nation to hear their pitch. Venture Atlanta has helped launch more than 700 companies and raise $6.5 billion in funding to date, spinning out $17 billion in successful exits.
“Vū is thrilled to be selected as a Venture Atlanta 2022 presenting company,” said Tim Moore, CEO of Vū. “As the video production industry continues to undergo a major shift to virtual technology, we see a unique opportunity to empower filmmakers to create content at the speed of thought.”
Vū owns and operates a network of virtual production sound stages utilizing proprietary, patent-pending technologies that empower directors to shoot their talent in photorealistic LED volumes. Vū has become the fastest growing network of virtual studios in North America, with studios in Tampa, Nashville, Las Vegas and Orlando.
“Vu is focused on revolutionizing the video creation process for global brands like Amazon, Mercedes, Apple, Disney, ESPN, and many more by expanding their creative boundaries and removing limitations such as having a cast and crew in one place,” said Mark Swanson, Chairman of Vū. “We are on a mission to expand our network of virtual studios to become the world’s largest virtual production studio network.”
As in previous years, Venture Atlanta FORWARD 2022 is anticipated to be a sold-out event, with over 1,200 entrepreneurs, founders, investors, and business leaders expected to be in attendance. A new venue for this year’s Venture Atlanta—the Woodruff Arts Center at 1280 Peachtree Street—reflects the growing intersection of art and technology.
“Venture Atlanta has established itself as the authority for recognizing technology innovation across the Southeast and beyond, connecting the best and brightest innovators with top-tier, national investors and other leaders in the tech ecosystem,” said Venture Atlanta CEO Allyson Eman. “We again set a new record with nearly 500 applicants for Venture Atlanta Forward 2022—our most competitive year yet in terms of presenter quality. With an impressive slate of 87 presenting and showcase companies, a record number of sponsors, and a brand-new venue, we’re continuing to raise the bar for what will be our 15th-anniversary event.”
