ATLANTA, Nov. 09, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Cooling fabric innovator brrr° was one of only eight companies chosen to present their business plans to active investors looking to place capital at the annual Emory RAISE Forum in Atlanta.

The elite conference is hosted by the Goizueta Business School at Emory University and was created to connect fast-growing revenue positive startups with investors seeking to make $1 million to $5 million investments in maturing technology companies in the Southeast.

Leaders of the startup companies invited to the RAISE Forum also receive consulting and mentoring from investors, professors and other business leaders.
