“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to select from an incredible impressive lineup of contenders. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
