TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations, and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia’s technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally.

 “The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia’s technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology.”

“Although CorFire is a newer face in Georgia, we are taking the necessary steps to become an even bigger player within the important technology community in our state,” said Keith Smith, president and COO of CorFire. “Our expansion at a local and global scale includes plans to double our workforce from 50 to 100 employees this year. We are confident that Georgia companies, like CorFire, will continue to play a vital role in the mobile payments arena by helping advance this technology forward across the U.S. and the world.”
