ATLANTA, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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.

"We are proud to be nominated as one of Atlanta's 50 on Fire," said Steady CEO Adam Roseman. "We strive to be the premier app for connecting people to the work they want and are reshaping the way companies hire for contract positions. Knowing that we're at the forefront of how Atlanta's workforce is earning extra income and being part of the Atlanta ecosystem in this way is positioning us to expand our reach and generate additional interest in the work we're doing."

Led by Propel Venture Partners, Omidyar Network and Clocktower Technology Ventures, and backed by former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, Steady raised $9 million in Series A funding last August. Earlier this year, Steady joined the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) at Georgia Tech's Accelerate program, was a finalist for the 2018 Atlanta Startup Awards and joined the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As of March 2019 Steady has been downloaded over 900,000 times.

Steady will be honored at a celebration for the 50 on Fire on Thursday, June 6 at 4 p.m. ET at the Ponce City Market Rooftop where 11 innovators, one from each category (B2B Technology and Software; B2C/C2C; Creative Content; Crypto/Blockchain; Cybersecurity; Government, Advocacy and Education; Healthcare and Medicine; FinTech; Lifestyle; Marketing, Advertising and Design, and Nonprofit), will receive the Inno Blazer award and a 50 on Fire blazer jacket. Tickets, $45-$3,750, are available through Eventbrite.
