Applicants needed for top innovative GA companies

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The Technology Association of Georgia is looking for applicants for the 2014 Top 40/Top 10 Innovative Companies in Georgia.

Companies from across the state have until Feb. 7 to apply to be considered for this annual award which recognizes Georgia's best and brightest.

"It's been a great year for our local technology sector," said Jerald Mitchell, director of Emerging Industry at the Savannah Economic Development Authority, in a statement. "I am hoping that we will be well represented among the state's Top 40 Innovative Companies with at least five or more applicants from the Savannah area this year."

The Top 40 will be awarded based on specific criteria including: degree of innovation, scope and financial impact of innovation, likelihood of success, and promotion of Georgia's innovative efforts nationally and internationally. Eligible companies will be Georgia based and focused on the development and dissemination of technology.

Companies selected for the Top 40 will be showcased in an exhibition at the 2014 Georgia Technology Summit, which is expected to draw the state's technology leaders.

The Top 10 most innovative technology companies will be chosen from among the Top 40 and will be asked to present at the summit, which will be held March 26 at the Cobb Galleria Center.

 Interested companies can apply online.
