Inc. Magazine Unveils Its First-Ever List of Florida’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—
The Inc. 5000 Series: Florida
IT Authorities Ranks No. 75 on the inaugural 2020 Inc. 5000 Series: Florida
TAMPA, FL, March 18, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that IT Authorities is No. 75 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: Florida list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Florida-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Florida economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
"To be recognized as the 75th Fastest Growing Company in Florida is a monumental accomplishment to attain in our 13th year of business. We are eternally grateful to our clients and employees for making this a reality,” said Jason Caras, CEO, IT Authorities.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Florida. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 302 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed more than 56,000 people and added $12.6 billion to the Florida economy. Companies based in the Tampa, Miami, and Naples metro areas brought in the highest revenue overall.
