Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
ATLANTA – (April 13, 2022) – 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.
Companies selected to the Top 40 will have the opportunity to showcase their company’s work at the Georgia Technology Summit’s exhibition April 26-27, 2022 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their contribution to innovation and economic growth within the state of Georgia’s technology sector.
“This year’s Top 40 companies represent a wide range of technology industries that power Georgia’s innovation economy,” said Dennis Zakas, Georgia’s Top 40 Innovative Company Awards Chair. “Based on the quality of the winners and the history of the award, it’s likely that some of today’s Top 40 companies will be the unicorns of tomorrow.”
TAG accepted nominations for Top 40 earlier this year. Nominations came from individuals in their respective companies or from external public relations agencies. The TAG Top 40 committee, comprised of esteemed technology and investment leaders, presided over the judging of applications. Judges reviewed applications based on the company’s innovation; the market need that their innovation addresses; and how the innovation benefits the Georgia technology economy.
Banyan Hills Technologies was founded in 2013 by Steve Latham, a connectivity and 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 connectivity and IoT, and within only a few years brought to market Canopy, its comprehensive software solution for operators of self-service devices and on-premise control systems.
Since its founding in 2013, Banyan Hills Technologies has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the United States three of the last five years. In addition, Banyan was included in the Venture Atlanta program in 2019 and was selected in 2021 to participate in the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce’s Backed By ATL program.
“Our passion for technology and helping our customers is reflected in our company progress,” said Steve Latham, chief executive officer and founder of Banyan Hills Technologies. “I am very proud to have Banyan recognized as one of the top 40 most innovative technology companies in Georgia for the second time in three years. Thank you to the Technology Association of Georgia for this recognition, and to everyone involved in making Banyan a success.”
