Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
ATLANTA (March 12, 2013) – 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 The Network as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2013 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 20, 2013, 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 2013 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 2013 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 90 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the “Top 40” will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2013 Georgia Technology Summit.
“Our ninth year of the Top 40 was an overwhelming success, based on the number of truly innovative companies that participated in the competition,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “The Top 40 winners demonstrate the depth and breadth of Georgia’s technology community.”
The Network, based in Norcross, Ga., and privately held, is the leading provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions to ethics & compliance officers. The company provides a SaaS-based GRC platform that helps organizations mitigate risk, achieve compliance and engage employees in order to create more ethical workplaces. This GRC suite brings together corporate policies and compliance eLearning along with tools to detect, investigate and remediate any potential compliance violation. Released in early 2012, it is the first and only solution to combine these key components in a natively integrated fashion.
“We are honored to be named by TAG as one of Georgia’s leading innovative companies and proud of how we have transformed our company into a leading technology provider that can deliver one-of-a-kind solutions for global organizations of all sizes and industries,” said Jimmy Lin, vice president of Product Management and Corporate Development at The Network. “The Network continues to address corporate compliance issues with a different approach to lead innovation in the GRC market.”
The 2013 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,000 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.
