ATLANTA (April 18, 2022) – Safely, the leader in short-term rental protection, is excited to announce it has been named to the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) list of the Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies for 2022.
TAG’s Top 40 Awards, sponsored by Amazon Web Services, Best Buy, and Comcast Business, recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their contribution to innovation and economic growth within the state of Georgia’s technology sector.
“TAG is pleased to recognize these top technology companies that help positively impact Georgia’s innovation economy,” said Larry K. Williams, President and CEO of TAG. “By Elevating, Innovating, and Activating strategies that support the vast technology ecosystem, these companies help advance our state’s position on the global technology stage.”
Safely is dedicated to creating and delivering comprehensive protection products for homeowners and property managers. Based in Atlanta, Safely has protected over $80 billion in homeowner liability coverage and 1 million guest nights.
“We are honored to be named to TAG’s Top 40 Innovative Companies list this year,” said Andrew Bate, CEO and Founder of Safely. “TAG inspired me to become a technology entrepreneur in the early 2000s while a student at Emory. I got to meet legends such as Chris Klaus, Charles Brewer, Marc Gorlin, and Michael Reene at TAG events, which kicked off my journey as a technology entrepreneur. Safely is the culmination of this journey, and we’ve built the right team to protect homeowners and guests in this rapidly-evolving sharing economy and short-term rental industry. Our fellow recipients are the companies we try to learn from and collaborate with as we all do our part to make Georgia’s technology ecosystem world-class. We are proud to be included.”
Safely and the other companies selected to the Top 40 will have the opportunity to showcase their company’s work at the Georgia Technology Summit’s exhibition April 26-27, 2022 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
“This year’s Top 40 companies represent a wide range of technology industries that power Georgia’s innovation economy,” said Dennis Zakas, Georgia’s Top 40 Innovative Company Awards Chair. “Based on the quality of the winners and the history of the award, it’s likely that some of today’s Top 40 companies will be the unicorns of tomorrow.”
