In 2007, Mark Buffington looked at Atlanta’s VC landscape and saw that someone needed to rethink the relationship between the early stage investor and the entrepreneur. After all, young companies needed more than just money to outperform their competitors and really begin to scale. This would require more involvement, transparency, tools, and resources than VCs normally brought to their portfolio companies. But the payoff could be exponential for investors and entrepreneurs alike. And it was. Buffington and his team built BIP Capital, the most active VC in the Southeast.
Meanwhile, Dr. Paul Judge had just completed his first of three tech startup exits. He would go on to become one of Atlanta’s most successful serial tech entrepreneurs by spotting opportunities that others overlooked and investing in over 60 technology startups.
Judge co-founded TechSquare Labs, an Atlanta-based venture fund and studio where he launched the Startup Battle platform. As both a visionary business leader and the lead inventor on over 30 patents, Judge became a well-known advocate for – and mentor to – Atlanta’s tech startup community.
In 2021, BIP Capital and Paul Judge joined forces to launch Panoramic Ventures. A VC firm that would take a wider view approach, opening new doors for overlooked founders, giving more entrepreneurs access to capital to build leading tech companies. Panoramic Ventures is the largest tech venture fund headquartered in the Southeast*.
