The first slot in the 2009 TAG Top 40 has already been spoken for! Simatra Modeling Technologies -- a VentureLab graduate and ATDC member -- won the special Startup Gauntlet competition in December. Simatra is developing high performance computing technologies for numerical simulation and analysis in industries such as aerospace, pharmaceutical research, and finance.

TAG is now looking for 39 more companies to be featured at the annual Georgia Technology Summit, March 3, 2009, at Cobb Galleria Center. This year's Summit will feature a keynote presentation by Thomas Friedman, author of "Hot, Flat and Crowded" and "The World is Flat."

The competitive selection process will focus on the companies' products, services and technologies. The Top 40 companies will participate in a showcase at the Summit, expected to draw over 1,000 leaders from the state's technology community. Ten particularly outstanding companies from the Top 40 will also make short presentations to the Summit attendees, including venture capitalists, angel investors, potential customers and partners.

Applications for the Top 40 Innovators program will be accepted through the end of January via the TAG Web site at http://www.tagonline.org.
