Dr. Gordon Jones, Guardian Watch™ founder & CEO, will be speaking to the attendees about the trials and tribulations of starting up a company, especially a tech-based company, in Augusta, GA outside the epicenter of the Atlanta Tech community. “I am excited and proud to have the opportunity to be among such a cool group of innovative, emerging companies and relaying my experiences as a tech startup,” stated Dr. Jones.
Guardian Watch™ (GW) is the developer of the first cloud-based mobile platform that connects citizens directly to public safety officials and emergency response teams to better prepare and respond to incidents. GW will present how the application augments the 911 phone call enabling users to generate incident reports and stream video in real time, setting a new standard of communications to foster safer communities across the country.
Jones will also speak about TheClubhou.se, another Augusta-based tech startup. “As the first place in the Greater Augusta region where anyone can come to knock around some ideas for inventions, make prototypes, wire some parts together, and hangout with fellow Hackers and Makers, TheClubhou.se is the seed of the startup community in Augusta,” Dr. Jones continued.
The Startup Rally will be held in the Georgian Ballroom of the Atlanta Biltmore Hotel. The Expo and Internship Fair will run from 3:00 to 7:00 pm.
