ATLANTA, GA — November 14, 2017 – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s foremost association devoted to the advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced the launch of the 2018 TAG FinTech ADVANCE Awards, which honor successful implementations of technology in FinTech. While a lot of attention is given to startups and innovation labs, TAG FinTech ADVANCE Award winners will be those companies and technology, which are in production, bringing measurable results and generally advancing the financial industry through the use of technology. Winners are also expected to show a connection to Georgia, such as a corporate presence in the state, strategic partners, customers, board members or other relationships that have helped the company to prosper. There is no charge to enter.
TAG FinTech ADVANCE Award winners will be prominently featured at FinTech City 2018, which is at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium May 7-8, 2018. Companies or their partners can nominate successful fintech utilizations now at www.tagonline.org/tag-fintech-advance-awards until January 31, 2018.
“Meaningful Innovation requires the successful deployment to improve on exiting ways of doing business,” said Sean Banks, partner of TTV Capital and TAG FinTech society chair. “The TAG FinTech ADVANCE Award winners are those companies that can demonstrate the discipline and experience needed to deploy and scale technology for real change.”
