Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 Regionals Southwest list had an average growth rate of 557 percent.
Inc. magazine today revealed that CertifID is No. 11 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000 Regionals Southwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies based in Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Southwest economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the Southwest region,” said Tyler Adams, CEO of CertifID. “While we are based in Austin, Texas - this award reflects a much broader commitment by all of our employees, customers, and partners everywhere. We’re extremely proud to be recognized as a leader in the regional community, as we continue to pursue our mission to help create a world without wire fraud.”
The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Southwest region. Between 2019 and 2021, these private companies had an average growth rate of 557 percent and, in 2021 alone, they added 16,116 jobs and nearly $5.5 billion to the Southwest region’s economy. Companies based in the Austin, Texas, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Fort Worth, Texas, areas had the highest growth rates overall.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Regionals Southwest, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/southwest starting February 28, 2023.
“This year’s Inc. 5000 Regional winners represent one of the most exceptional and exciting lists of America’s off-the-charts growth companies. They’re disrupters and job creators, and all delivered an outsize impact on the economy. Remember their names and follow their lead.
