"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.
