Company Founded by UGA Professors Among Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ATHENS, Ga., March 14 -- The University of Georgia issued the following news release: IS3D LLC, a company that makes interactive educational software and was founded by professors from the University of Georgia, is one of the Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia for 2014, according to the Technology Association of Georgia.

TAG's Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact and efforts to spread awareness of Georgia's technology initiatives globally. The 2014 Top 40 list was selected from more than 100 applications submitted by technology companies throughout the state. The group will be recognized later this month at the 2014 Georgia Technology Summit.

"We're delighted to be named one of the Top 40 innovative companies in Georgia and to be invited to participate in the TAG Technology Summit," said Tom Robertson, CEO of IS3D LLC and an associate professor of physiology and pharmacology in the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine. "This is a great accolade, not just for the IS3D team, but also for the UGA researchers and our partner teachers who have worked tirelessly to push our projects forward. Our next step is to raise capital and expand the company, and the summit is a great platform for us to launch this effort." IS3D was founded in 2010 by eight UGA faculty and staff members who shared a dream of improving science comprehension and inspiring young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math, known as STEM fields. Through partnerships with more than a dozen school districts, IS3D's team of artists, designers and programmers have developed a robust catalog of products based on student and teacher feedback, and the software has made many students excited about science for the first time, Robertson said.

"The 2014 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia's technology community," said Tino Mantella, president and CEO of TAG. "The 2014 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." TAG is the leading technology industry association in the state and serves more than 22,000 members through regional chapters in metro Atlanta, Athens, Augusta, Columbus, Macon/middle Georgia and Savannah. TAG works to educate, promote and unite Georgia's technology community to foster an innovative and connected marketplace that stimulates and enhances a tech-based economy.
