Meet the Team
Our team is currently made up of 20 neurodiverse individuals. Ventures ATL is designed to address an important issue–the fact that many of these adults are suitably skilled to hold jobs for which there may be an apparent shortage of qualified and interested workers. While these adults may face a number of challenges in the job market, they have a relatively strong ability to perform the essential functions of the jobs provided by Ventures ATL.
Chet Hurwitz, Chief Talent Officer
Chet is actively engaged on a daily basis to help Ventures ATL achieve its mission to provide carer path opportunities for neurodiverse adults. In this role, he relies on more than 40 years of experience as a lawyer and strategic business advisor to several global companies. For the last decade he has been an active and visible leader of national initiatives to create meaningful career paths for individuals with autism and other developmental differences. Chet plays a lead role in the development of the commercial relationships with our corporate clients and the manner in which Ventures ATL delivers successful client engagements. Chet has lived in Atlanta for more than 30 years and he has an adult son on the autism spectrum.
