“Anytime the most prominent Atlanta companies can come together to support smaller, innovative companies like ours to create value, it’s a win for the entire community,” said Christy Johnson, CEO, AchieveIt. “This program not only provided invaluable learnings on how large enterprises buy and what they value, but it also gave us unprecedented insights from their senior executives. We benefited greatly from the experience.”
The 13 partners supporting Engage include: AT&T; Chick-fil-A; Cox Enterprises; Delta Air Lines; Georgia-Pacific; Georgia Power Foundation Inc.; Georgia Tech; The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.; The Intercontinental Exchange (ICE); Invesco Ltd.; The Home Depot; Tech Square Ventures; and UPS.

“AchieveIt was a great fit for Engage. While the Engage corporate partners span many markets and verticals, the pains and complexity of managing strategic plans and initiatives are felt by all large organizations,” said Thiago Olson, Managing Director of Engage Ventures. “AchieveIt is changing how companies execute and manage initiatives by increasing visibility across multiple strategic plans. At Engage, we are excited to be a part of their journey.”
