ATLANTA, GA – FEBRUARY 22, 2016
Social123 today announced that the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) has named them as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2016 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 17, 2016, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The 2016 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2016 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the “Top 40” will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2016 Georgia Technology Summit.
“An extraordinary number of truly innovative technology companies participated in this year’s Top 40 competition, demonstrating the depth and breadth of Georgia’s technology community,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, CEO of Zinc., and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In fact, based on the quality of the contestants, we could have had a ‘Top 60’ without losing a beat.”
Social123 has built a technology that addresses a significant challenge faced by every enterprise and mid-market organization. With their data as a service (DaaS) solution, Social123 is able to tap into an underserved market and transform the way businesses manage their contact data. This contributes to why they have been named a top innovative technology company.
“As a 2015 Signature Graduate Company from ATDC (Advanced Technology Development Center) and a nominee for Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter Awards for the second year in a row, we are humbled and excited to be selected as a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company,” said Aaron Biddar, CEO of Social123, “We believe this is just the tip of the iceberg as our company, technologies, and solutions continue to grow and evolve.”
The 2016 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,300 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia’s technology community. In addition to presentations from some of the top technology influencers in the nation, the newest member of the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia will be inducted.
