Georgia Fintech is More Than Just Transaction Alley
Of all the billions of payment transactions taking place each day across the United States, more than 70 percent are processed by companies in Atlanta and around Georgia. That remarkable statistic has helped Atlanta earn the nickname “Transaction Alley.”
Today, Georgia’s thriving fintech ecosystem represents broad-based growth beyond its payments industry foundation, and Atlanta has emerged as a world-class hub for financial technology. The Fintech South events are a product of this momentum, a collaborative effort of our remarkable local fintech community!
TAG's 2021 Georgia Fintech Ecosystem Report
The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) has launched the updated 2021 market report for Georgia’s Fintech ecosystem. On Wednesday, June 23 from 3:30pm – 4:00pm Eastern Time, we hosted a special session hosted by the co-authors and industry leaders.
The TAG Fintech Ecosystem Report is the most comprehensive and authoritative overview of the ecosystem that makes Georgia a global center for fintech, transactions and innovation. This year’s edition provides excellent insights into the trends, companies, organizations and academic institutions that work together to build these critical capabilities.
Each year, the TAG Fintech Society tracks the fintech companies throughout the state of Georgia to understand the role they play and the impact of their technology innovations. TAG also tracks key market dynamics such as mergers, acquisitions, and investment funding activities to help interested parties understand how the local fintech industry is flexing and expanding to respond to the demands for increased digitization and automation throughout global financial services markets.
Georgia’s fintech ecosystem consists of over 200 technology companies that together employ more than 39,000 professionals. To qualify for TAG’s Fintech list, a company must be headquartered in Georgia or have a significant business presence in the state, thus making a positive contribution to the Georgia economy. Fintech companies drive technology that support financial services including payments, gateways, online lending, risk management and associated businesses. Of the 33 public companies on our map, the dozen formally headquartered in Georgia alone generated more than $37 billion in 2020 revenues and a combined year-end market capitalization of $192 billion.
