Inaugural 50 on Fire winners represent Atlanta’s most innovative entrepreneurs and organizations
Steady, a groundbreaking platform building a better future for America’s workforce, was named by American Inno as one of Atlanta Inno’s 50 on Fire.
The inaugural list was comprised through nominations from the community of entrepreneurs and startups reshaping innovation in the Atlanta area through new funding, recent product launches, in-demand recruits and innovative approaches to solving problems.
Steady was one of five visionary FinTech companies nominated because of the app’s income building platform providing workers with flexible, on-demand jobs and financial services to fit the needs and aspirations of its users.
