TAG (Technology Association of Georgia) recognized 10 of Georgia’s most innovative technology companies at The Summit 2018 last week. We were honored to be selected as one of 10 recipients of the 2018 Top 10 Innovation Award.
ThingTech CEO and Co-founder Tim Quinn was invited to speak to a crowd of enterprises and startups. He talked about the business problems we solve with technology, and how our IoT platform connects things at the edge, in the cloud, and within the enterprise to generate actionable data, digital insight and machine learning. Tim also shared stories of customer successes within the cold chain logistics industry.
If you’re not familiar with TAG, it’s the engine for Georgia’s tech-based economy. TAG brings together Atlanta’s largest corporations, high-tech startups, venture capital, technical learning institutions, and startup incubators. The goal of TAG is to drive economic development and provide a framework for Georgia’s growing technology industry
ThingTech has deep connections to Atlanta’s startup ecosystem. Our company was started in Atlanta Tech Village. As the company transitioned from bootstrapped to venture funded, we became a signature startup with Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC). Most recently, we’ve partnered with TechSquare Labs, Engage Ventures, and Venture Atlanta.
We look forward to next year’s TAG The Summit event. Reflecting on The Summit 2018, we learned that venture capital is pouring into Atlanta, the city is adding tech jobs faster than the national average, and 50% of Georgia’s tech employment is in the software space. The IoT is helping organizations reach new levels of operational efficiency. We’re proud of our work and will continue showing support to Atlanta’s technology ecosystem.
