FIX Selected to Participate in Baker Donelson’s Fourth Annual Southeastern Emerging Companies Capital Connections
Atlanta, GA / May 12, 2016 FIX has been selected to be a presenting company during Baker Donelson’s Southeastern Emerging Companies Capital Connections 2016. The event focuses on bringing together successful entrepreneurs and capital investors from across the Southeast.

“We’re excited at the opportunity to be in front of such a diverse and experienced group of investors,” says Mike Tinney, CEO of FIX. “The insight that a group like this can bring is invaluable.”
During the event, which is being held in the Baker Donelson Cybersecurity Accelerator in the Firm’s Atlanta, Georgia, office, the 15 participating companies will be able to pitch their ideas to a group of more than 20 investors from across the region. The top two presenting companies, as selected by the investors, will receive a $5,000 credit towards legal services associated with a series A or other investment round into the company. The top seven companies will have one-on-one meetings with investors attending the event.
