TechJournal recently released their list of the Top 50 innovative technology startups in the Southeast. Georgia had 10 of the startups on the list (CoalTek, Firethorn, Intent
Mediaworks, Jacket Micro Devices (ATDC), Nexidia (ATDC), ReachMD, Recordant,
Scentric (ATDC), Steelbox, ViTrue). North Carolina led with 13 companies and Virginia had 9.
Considering there are about 10 states in the Southeast, Georgia did pretty well on a percentage basis. The companies were nominated by VCs, entrepreneurs, and economic developers and since TechJournal is based in Research Triangle, NC you expect that NC companies would receive more nominations.
Overall positive outlook on the Georgia startup scene.
