The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s largest tech-focused industry association, today published the TAG Impact Report for 2023-2024. Sharing data originally presented at the Georgia Technology Summit, the TAG Impact Report highlights why Georgia continues to be the #1 state to do business in with an additional 100,000 technology jobs to be created by 2033. Within the next 10 years, this would bring the total to more than 400,000 tech jobs across the Peach State.

“Georgia is a world-class hub for fintech, cybersecurity, digital health, sustainability, and so much more. I am consistently impressed by the resilience, creativity, and passion of our technology community,” said TAG’s president and CEO, Larry K. Williams. “Georgia has been named as the #1 best state to do business in for an unprecedented nine years in a row. Atlanta is the sixth largest U.S. metropolis now, ahead of D.C., Philadelphia, and other historic cities. Technology is at the center, enabling key pieces of industry that drive our great state.”

Technology enterprises contribute $34 billion to the Gross Regional Product (up 35% since 2019) with more than 18,000 technology companies calling Georgia home. As the need for a skilled workforce continues to increase, TAG is answering the call through it’s TAG Education Collaborative, TAG-Ed, which recently launched the state’s first registered tech apprenticeship program.

“By breaking traditional barriers, this program enables individuals with a non-traditional educational background to become skilled tech professionals,” said Dr. Loretta Daniels, Interim Executive Director of TAG-Ed. “As the first program of its kind in the state, Georgia’s tech apprenticeship program is a tremendous step forward for diversity, creating a dynamic, inclusive workforce.”

TAG was founded in 1998 at the height of the technology boom in Georgia following the Olympics and is celebrating its milestone 25th anniversary. As displayed in the impact report, TAG’s influence can be felt across the state including advocating for computer science education, and on issues and policies that affect the technology sector such as artificial intelligence and data privacy.

“We have come a long way in the past 25 years, and Georgia has taken its place as a global leader in technology,” Williams added. “I am so excited about the future as I continue to see Georgia at the forefront of creating technologies and innovation that will continue to drive our economy and create new companies.”
