About Venture Atlanta
Venture Atlanta, the Southeast’s technology innovation event, is where the region’s most promising tech companies meet the country’s top-tier investors. This year’s event is going all digital through Venture Atlanta Live Online.
As the Southeast’s largest investor showcase helping launch more than 400 companies and raise over $4.5 billion in funding to date, the event connects the region’s top entrepreneurs with local and national investors and others in the technology ecosystem who can help them raise the capital they need to grow their businesses.

Medxoom’s founder Jeff was frustrated by the lack of useful tools to research affordable quality healthcare for his son. Furthermore, even after care was selected, a completely opaque and fragmented healthcare billing experience left Jeff convinced that there is a better way. Jeff founded Medxoom to drive dramatic improvements in the ability to comparison shop, pay and save on their healthcare engagement.
Medxoom unifies the health benefits and payments experience. We license a white label platform to Healthcare Plans and Benefits Administrators to drive an optimized employee health benefits experience and reduce aggregate healthcare spend. Medxoom offers the industry’s most modern, mobile-first experience with steerage to preferred providers, price publishing, digital concierge & modern payment solutions to unlock same-as-cash savings for various procedures and providers.
