Invest in the future of Atlanta: Andre Dickens

In the last few years, Atlanta has birthed several multi-billion dollar tech companies, including SalesLoft, Calendly, and Rubicon just to name a few. But now, we are sitting at a critical crossroads in terms of our city’s future leaders.

So, I’m reaching out to you—our network of outlanders from Los Angeles, New York, DC, Miami, and across the country—to help us elect a mayor who will have a profound impact on the most diverse startup city in America.

Atlanta needs an ethical, progressive mayor who wants to engage with the startup and venture community, and Andre Dickens has impressed me since day one. That’s why I’m hosting a critical fireside chat with Andre on 11/18 at 11 am ET, so you can see for yourself why he’s the right candidate for the job.

Even if you are not an Atlanta voter, consider this: Elections—like startups —require capital to succeed. But unlike state elections, the benefits of diverse startup hubs like Atlanta extends beyond state and even country lines.

With a donation as small as $1,000 (and as large as $4,300), you can invest in the leadership necessary to build the next Atlanta unicorns and the future of diverse emerging managers and founders alike. Leura and I are maxing out our individual donations to support his campaign, and we are asking our friends and family to join us in supporting the future of Atlanta innovation through a contribution to his campaign, too. 

If you are an Atlanta voter and believe our city deserves an ethical, progressive mayor, look no further than Andre Dickens.

At our fireside, we will dive into his plans to advance education, build bridges with the startup and investment community, and provide a safe, efficient, and ethical local government. I believe that for the future of our startup ecosystem and the health and safety of our great city, he is the right person for the job.

Hope to see you all there!
