EyeGage Selected as a Venture Atlanta 2022 Showcase Company
Over $6.5 billion in funding awarded to date; leading tech investment conference continues to select large and diverse lineup of innovators from the Southeast’s hottest tech markets.
ATLANTA – September 20, 2022 – EyeGage 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 be showcased at Venture Atlanta FORWARD 2022 on 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 them 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.

EyeGage allows high-risk workplaces to stay ahead of accidents with confidence—quickly and accurately screening for substances prior to operating equipment. The EyeGage solution saves time, money, and lives, while inherently reducing the negative impacts of substance abuse on families and communities. EyeGage runs on a mobile device that captures a snapshot of your eyes then assesses impairment.
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.
