Time: Thursday, March 18, 2021 7PM EST

Presented by The College of Computing


Georgia Tech’s College of Computing is home to a thriving startup culture that embraces those not content with just having a good idea. This entrepreneurial spirit is embodied in the College’s students, alumni, and faculty who have turned scores of good ideas into successful business ventures.To highlight these entrepreneurs and inspire those that follow, GT Computing has established the John P. Imlay Jr. Series on Entrepreneurship. This series began in 2019 with profiles of GT Computing students, alumni, and faculty that are shaping the College’s entrepreneurial culture. In fall 2020, we expanded the initiative to include a monthly speaker series.We invite you to join us on Thursday, March 18 at 7pm EST for a fireside chat with Georgia Tech alumni Mark Buffington (BS MGT ’93) and Paul Judge (PhD CS ’02) of Panoramic Ventures. Paul has been part of several cybersecurity companies. In addition to his involvement in Pindrop, he co-founded Purewire (acquired by Barracuda) and was CTO at Cyphertrust which was acquired eventually by McAfee.The evening will begin with a conversation between Mark, Paul, and Dr. Charles Isbell, Dean and John P. Imlay Jr. Chair, about how they plan to change the entrepreneurship landscape in Atlanta and why it is important to them to focus on underserved regions and overlooked founders. We will conclude the event with questions from the audience. 

Registration will remain open until noon on March 18. All registrants will be emailed information on how to join the live stream directly from the BlueJeans virtual event platform.
