IgniteHQ mentor Tricia Whitlock is plugged into Atlanta’s entrepreneurial scene. Throughout her startup world tenure, Whitlock has penned more than 600 articles showcasing technology, entrepreneurship and innovation in Georgia, reported on Atlanta’s tech and startup sector for WSB-TV, and marketed the area’s top incubators and entrepreneurial spaces.
It’s no wonder Atlanta’s startup world begs for Tricia’s attention. Her resume boasts an impressive portfolio of universities, billion-dollar corporations and incubators – all entities she enhanced through her passion for bolstering other people’s startup dreams.
With her vast knowledge of startups in Metro Atlanta, Tricia points to the culture as something that is most special.
“The openness and friendliness of the people in Atlanta’s startup scene is exceptional,” said Tricia. “This is an incredibly welcoming and inclusive place.”
From Build to Improve
Currently, Tricia is spearheading marketing, public relations and operations at Startup Genome, a company dedicated to enhancing startup success by catalyzing the startup ecosystem in forward looking regions.
While she is directing her attention to other cities, Tricia remains proudly engaged in Atlanta.
“My job with Startup Genome has me working in startup scenes all over the world, but there’s no place like home! To stay in touch with the local ecosystem, I’m serving as Founding Co-chair of GSU’s Entrepreneurial Alumni Network.”
An IgniteHQ Asset
Tricia has been supporting IgniteHQ since it opened its doors off of the Marietta Square in 2017. She first worked to build IgniteHQ; now she helps its members do the same.
“IgniteHQ’s mix of members and tenants showcase the Atlanta area’s wide variety of talent and focus – creative agencies, social enterprises, high tech startups, religious groups, venture capitalists, students – there’s so much under one roof.”
