Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
ATLANTA (February 26, 2018) – 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 AnalyticsIQ as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at The Summit 2018 on March 20th and 21st, 2018, 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 2018 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Larry Williams, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2018 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 were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the “Top 40” will be showcased in an exhibition at The Summit 2018.
“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
AnalyticsIQ was selected as part of this elite group because of their dedication to innovation and technology. As the first marketing and analytics data company to consistently blend cognitive psychology with sophisticated data science, AnalyticsIQ helps Fortune 500 brands not only understand who consumers are, but more importantly, how and why they make the decisions they do. Thousands of insights and data points are made available via their industry leading PeopleCore consumer database.
“We are honored that TAG has recognized AnalyticsIQ as one of Georgia’s most innovative companies,” states Dave Kelly, CEO and Founder of AnalyticsIQ. “Every day we focus on developing fresh, new strategies and products that help other companies tap into the power of data through. We’re proud to say that our innovation really shines through in our clients’ results. For example, when we’re able to help a non-profit decrease their cost to attract a new donor by 71% or help a financial services client attract 86% more customers through their campaigns because they are relying on our data, it’s really meaningful,” adds Kelly. “And when a fantastic organization like TAG recognizes your commitment to innovation that makes an impact, it truly makes for a rewarding experience.”
The Summit 2018 is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,500 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.
