The first event for the Conexx Young Profesionals group,co-sponsored by YAFI, on Thursday, July 7, is set to feature Cloud Sherpas Founder Michael Cohn. Taking place at the new Ponce City Market from 6:30-9:00 p.m., Michael Cohn, who is the Managing Director Techstars Atlanta will speak about his professional journey and how Israel has empowered him in his personal and professional career.
A true entrepreneur, Cohn founded Cloud Sherpas, an Atlanta based global cloud advisory and technology services company in 2008. Cohn grew the company to include over 1,000 employees and raised over $63 million before the company was acquired by Accenture in 2015.

“The upcoming event will bring together Young Professionals from across Atlanta to learn from an expert on tech-start ups, entrepreneurship, and the start-up scene in the area,” said Jordan Arogetti, Chair of the Conexx Young Professionals group. “This is an excellent opportunity for networking and to learn more about how Israeli companies and technologies are already being leveraged in our community.”
