The Digital Ball offers Georgia an amazing evening that brings together leading technologists in the business community with charitable organizations who are finding practical applications for biz technologies to deliver their missions. The idea+technology…With the sponsorship of USTGlobal for real-time crowdfunding technology, attendees raised money to support the ideas generated by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and those charitable projects. The nonprofit organizations are asked to come up with 20% of the funding while TechBridge supporters pick up 80% of the tab for these projects.

Digital Ball Co-Hosts Miriam McLemore of Amazon’s AWS and Tom Miller, formerly of Anthem, Inc. (now with Sellr) recognized the Digital Event Series presenting sponsor, Accenture, a stalwart supporter of TechBridge since 2000. Accenture was joined in its support by tremendously important platinum sponsors: Anthem, Inc., CDW, The Coca-Cola Company plus IBM Cloud and IBM Security.
