Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals: Florida list employed more than 83,000 people in 2019.
Boca Raton, March 16, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Imagination Media is No. 90 on its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: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.
"Companies worldwide have experienced many hardships over the past year. It is humbling and gratifying to see our continuous efforts recognized nationally by Inc., being named one of Florida's fastest-growing companies, especially following 2020," said Ali Ahmed, CEO of Imagination Media.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Florida. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 202 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 83,000 people and added nearly $11 billion to the Florida economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, and Orlando—brought in the highest revenue overall.
"We wouldn't be where we are without an incredible team of dedicated individuals, who are the engine behind our growth. We are honored to see the hard work pay off," continued Ahmed. "This recognition is incredibly impactful as we look to increase innovation, expertise, and locally sourced talent."
