by David Eckoff · 2 comments

Technology Association of Georgia has announced the finalists in the TAG Business Launch Competition 2012.

This year, 65 companies applied to compete. Of those, 10 startups were selected to present in the semi-finals round, which I helped judge this past week.

Our Semi Finals judging team selected four companies to compete in the Finals Competition:

Congratulations to the four finalists. And to all companies who competed.

The four finalists now continue to compete for $50,000 in cash, and each will receive part of a Suite of Services package valued at over $400,000.

The Finals Competition event will be Thursday, May 24, 2012 at The Defoor Centre (1710 Defoor Ave NW, Atlanta, GA), from 3:30 – 8:00 p.m. There will be a VC Panel discussion with VC’s from around the country. The event will also feature a cash bar and heavy hors d’ouvres throughout the evening.

This is a really great event. If you’re interested in attending, here’s a link to take advantage of early bird pricing for the Finals Competition:
