Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
ATLANTA — (February 6, 2020) – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Banyan Hills Technologies as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at The Summit 2020 on March 3-4, 2020, 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 2020 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Larry K. Williams, president and CEO of TAG. “The 2020 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 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 Summit 2020.
“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
Banyan Hills Technologies was founded in 2013 by Steve Latham, an Internet-of-Things (IoT) expert with more than 20 years of technology industry experience. The company started on the simple premise of helping customers solve for the complexities of IoT, and within only a few years brought to market Canopy, its end-to-end IoT platform. In its next phase of growth, the company is building out an IoT marketplace with an ever-expanding library of business applications and device integrations.
“I am very proud to have Banyan recognized as one of the top 40 most innovative technology companies in Georgia,” said Steve Latham, chief executive officer and founder of Banyan Hills Technologies. “Our passion for IoT technology and helping our customers is reflected in our company progress. Thank you to the Technology Association of Georgia for this recognition, and to everyone involved in making Banyan a success.”
The Summit event will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers, the Top 40 and Top 10 Innovative Georgia Companies competition, the newest inductee into the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia, 16 breakout sessions on global trend, and a two-day exhibitor showcase.
