Atlanta startup wins $100,000 in investments during tech battle

Take the concept of “Shark Tank,” localize it to Atlanta, restrict it to emerging technology companies only and you’ve basically got the Atlanta Startup Battle

Cinchapi, a platform built to simplify data preparation, exploration and development, won $100,000 in investments at the competition Thursday. 

The young company beat out four other finalists chosen from more than 400 entries. The founders pitched their ideas to a panel of judges made up of active venture capitalists with investment portfolios including Facebook and Dropbox, according to a news release.
