ATLANTA (Aug. 22, 2016) – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s foremost association devoted to the advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced the TAG FinTech ADVANCE Awards, which honor successful implementations of technology in FinTech. While a lot of attention is given to startups and innovation labs, TAG FinTech ADVANCE Award winners will be those companies and technology which are in production, bringing measurable results and generally advancing the financial industry through the use of technology. Winners are also expected to show a connection to Georgia, such as a corporate presence in the state, strategic partners, customers, board members or other relationships that have helped the company to prosper.
TAG FinTech ADVANCE Award winners will be prominently featured at the society’s annual event in February and in TAG’s news channels. Companies or their partners can nominate successful Fintech utilizations now at www.tagonline.org/tag-fintech-advance-awards until October 15, 2016. There is no charge to enter.
“The impact of FinTech isn’t always obvious,” said Sean Banks, partner of TTV Capital and TAG FinTech society chair. “When technology works in our industry, it can often be reducing fraud, lowering the costs of transactions or even keeping companies compliant with federal regulations. The TAG FinTech ADVANCE Award winners are likely to illustrate tremendous teamwork from FinTech vendors, customer companies and the third party advisors needed to make technology work as it is envisioned.”
