Tech in Motion announces top local tech companies and launches public voting to determine winners
ATLANTA, September 12, 2019 – Tech in Motion has recognized Banyan Hills Technologies as a finalist for 2019 Best Tech Startup as a part of the Annual Timmy Awards, which they host to celebrate the top workplaces for tech professionals. The Timmys finalists in this category are chosen for their innovation, forward-thinking leadership and work environment. Two Best Tech Startup awards will be announced at a live ceremony this October, one for Judge’s Choice and one Community Favorite, chosen by public voting here online.
“We are excited to recognize the top local startups on the Timmy Awards finalist list this year. These companies are not only attractive to talented professionals nationwide, but ones that strive for everyday innovation,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion. “Every year, the event series grows alongside the tech community. It reflects the increasing quality of startups here that we are able to offer two awards this year to keep up with the growth in the industry.”
Banyan Hills Technologies was founded in 2013 by Steve Latham, an Internet-of-Things (IoT) expert with more than 20 years of technology and 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 and named a finalist for the Timmy Awards,” said Steve Latham, chief executive officer and founder of Banyan Hills Technologies. “Canopy is delivering tremendous value to our customers by reducing operating costs, increasing revenue and leveraging data to maximize the full potential of an IoT deployment. It’s exciting to see this value be recognized by our customers, as well as through the Timmy Awards.”
The local community has a chance to get involved by voting online now through September 27th to determine which company will be crowned the best in tech as the Community Favorite, while the Judge’s Choice winners will be chosen by a panel of expert judges. Aside from Best Tech Startup, the other award categories include: Best Tech Manager, Best Tech Work Culture and Best Tech Workplace for Diversity. The complete list of 2019 Timmy Awards finalists can be found here.
