March 12, 2012 - The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the leading technology industry association in Georgia, has announced their list of the ‘ Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia,’ which will be featured at an upcoming event in Atlanta.  The start-up coming rapidapp of Savannah has been included on the list.

The association provides members with access to networking and educational programs; recognizes and promotes Georgia’s technology leaders and companies; and advocates for legislative action that enhances the state’s economic climate for technology.

Each Top 40 company will showcase their innovation in a booth at the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre. 

“The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology,” according to Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia’s technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology.”

“This year we had a significant increase in the number of applications over the past few years.  We were very impressed by the quality and breadth of technology companies that applied,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee.  “It was very difficult to choose the Top 40 because of the large number of deserving companies. We expect great things from our winners.”

This year’s theme, Innovation: The Path to a Bright Future, builds upon TAG’s public awareness campaign to promote Georgia’s technology industry through an emphasis on the fastest-growing tech clusters in the state, including health IT, information security, financial technology, logistics and communication services.  According to experts, clusters bring about more resources which lead to greater innovation.
