It’s no secret that Atlanta is swiftly becoming one of the country’s most notable tech hubs, a trend that Inc. magazine has recently uncovered. The city’s tech scene is growing so rapidly that six Atlanta-based tech startups fell within the top 100 businesses ranked on this year’s Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies.
The magazine ranked U.S.-based, privately-held companies by their percentage revenue growth between 2018 and 2021. On a list of 5,000 businesses, 206 of them are based in the Atlanta metro, including 122 repeat honorees like Salesloft, Florence Healthcare and IRONSCALES. This year, these companies ranked at no. 1,778, no. 1,145 and no. 875, respectively.
On top of this, several Atlanta-based brands ranked within the top 300 companies on Inc.’s list, including Flock Safety — which recently pulled in its Series E — at no. 213, Apptega — which also raised growth funding this year — at no. 234 and PadSplit — most recently bolstered by its Series B round — at no. 290.
