13 members of Tech Hub South Florida appear on this year’s edition of the Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the US.

369 of the companies on this list are based in Florida, with 142 located in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. In our region, 38 of the companies listed are active in the tech industry. Two of these companies were founded over the past year, and 20 are repeat honorees.

The median yearly growth of these companies was 178%, total revenue was $1.2 billion, and they cumulatively added 1,762 new jobs over the last year. These figures would be impressive any year, but are particularly so considering the economic uncertainty and volatility brought on by the pandemic.

Tequesta-based wealth management firm Cary Stamp & Co. landed on Inc.’s list for the first time this year. As a Tech Hub South Florida member, the company has been very active in promoting our region as a vibrant center for innovation. Cary Stamp, the firm’s founder and CEO, said that “It’s truly gratifying to be recognized by Inc.,” and noted that the award “is the result of a tremendous amount of focus and effort from our team members.”

This year marks Digital Resource’s fourth time on the Inc. 5000 list. The downtown West Palm Beach-based internet marketing agency is led by 29-year-old founder and President Shay Berman. He expressed excitement about the award, especially within the context of such a difficult year: “I couldn’t be more proud of us to have grown through what will hands down be our hardest year as a company. It’s a testament to the perseverance and resilience of our young team. It’s what makes us, as we say, the ‘DReam Team.”

Manish Hirapara, CEO of PeakActivity

Tech Hub South Florida member PeakActivity made the Inc. 5000 for the second straight year. CEO Manish Hirapara credits the work of his team as the key to the company’s continued growth: “This honor is a direct result of the talents and dedication possessed by our amazing team of Peaksters. Regardless of role, tenure, or location, every one of our team members has played a part in us receiving this accolade.” The digital strategy and implementation company recently launched RevCommerce, a highly customizable eCommerce platform.

Alan Shimel, CEO and founder of Tech Hub South Florida member company MediaOps and co-founder professional member association the DevOps Institute, has double the reason to celebrate. Both of these companies made it onto the Inc. 5000. Shimel said that the teams “are excited to continue this upward trajectory in 2021 and beyond.”

Dedicated IT, a Tech Hub member headquartered in Lake Park, landed at #3000 on the Inc. List for its work solving its clients trickiest IT needs.
