The 2017 Georgia Technology Summit will feature TAG’s Top 10/Top 40 Innovative Companies in Georgia. The Top 40 Innovative Companies are being chosen based on a number of criteria, including: degree of innovation; scope and financial impact of innovation; likelihood of success; and promotion of Georgia’s innovative efforts nationally and internationally.
The Top 40 companies also receive the following benefits:
Recognition at the Georgia Technology Summit: Each Top 40 Company will be honored at the GTS and have the opportunity to promote its business and showcase its technology with a special booth. Companies selected as the Top 10 will also make a short presentation to the Summit audience. A Top 40 Innovative Company program will be distributed to the Summit attendees, which last year exceeded 1,500 in number, containing the company name of all Top 40 Innovative Companies, with additional emphasis on the Top 10 award recipients.
