Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation
and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community

 

ATLANTA (February 22, 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 Neurotic Media 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, where awarded companies will be showcased in an exhibition.

Tag Top 40 2018TAG’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. This year’s Top 40 were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia.

“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 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.”

“We thank TAG for this wonderful award and congratulate our fellow award winners,” said Shachar Oren, Founder and CEO of Neurotic Media. “This award is a testament to our team’s constant diligence in pushing the envelope technically and operationally. As a white-label music service, we constantly morph and enhance our technology with the changing nature of the music business and the rapid growth of our customers. From iOS and Android subscription Apps and innovating API services to cloud platforms and MongoDB high-speed database deployments, we’ve achieved so much in the last few years and we are proud to see our work recognized by the TAG community. It is exciting to see such tremendous growth in the Georgia high tech sector in recent years, and we’re proud to stand beside the other award winners.”

Our CEO named President of GMP

Shachar Oren, Founder and CEO of Neurotic Media, was elected President of Georgia Music Partners (GMP), the authority that promotes, grows and improves the music economy in the state of Georgia. GMP was the primary driver behind Georgia’s Music Investment Act (HB-155), which Governor Deal signed into law in May 2017. GMP is now focused on promoting Georgia’s Music Investment Act to the music industry nationally and locally in order to drive job growth in Georgia, and emphasize workforce readiness strategy in collaboration with academia. GMP is led by a Board of industry professionals who all volunteer pro bono to drive GMP’s mission forward.

The following post was made on the GMP site by exiting founding president Tammy Hurt on September 8th, 2017:

It has been a privilege and humbling experience to serve as president of Georgia Music Partners (GMP) these last 7 years. With a huge legislative win and Governor Deal’s signing of HB 155 into Georgia’s Music Investment Act, the stage is set for Georgia to exponentially grow its music industry. While I have very much enjoyed being at the helm of the organization, it’s time for me to concentrate on building my business and focus on fulfilling my role as national Trustee of the Recording Academy Atlanta. It’s an exciting evolution for me and it is a very good time for GMP.

I am passing the proverbial baton to my colleague, Shachar “Shac” Oren, who has served as a GMP board member since 2014. I believe he is the best person within the organization to lead GMP’s business and workforce development efforts to grow Georgia’s music economy. At our last board meeting, Shac was unanimously voted in as president. If you don’t already know him, he is CEO & President of both Neurotic Media and Amplified. Shac will follow up in upcoming days with information about GMP’s roadmap for 2017-2018.
I’m not leaving, just making way for the organization to continue on the path we have created together. I will continue to provide support to my fellow colleagues and the organization going forward as a board member and sponsor.

It has truly been an honor to have been a small part of the big journey.

Tammy Hurt
Founding President, Georgia Music Partners
