Kikoda Appears on the Inc. 5000 for the Second Consecutive Year, With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 199 Percent

NEW YORK, NY – Inc. has revealed that Kikoda is No. 2793 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized yet again by Inc. for our continued growth,” said Matt Dufek, Kikoda President and CEO. “We’re changing the way IT is approached by upskilling our clients throughout the projects and making our processes completely transparent. This win is indicative of the value we bring to our clients, and in the trust they have in our team.”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”

Methodology

Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021.

As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.

Kikoda Announces Celebration for the Relocation and Expansion of New H...

Tallahassee, Fla. – October 3, 2022 — Kikoda, a leading software solutions and IT provider, is thrilled to announce the expansion of their company headquarters to accommodate rapid growth brought on by high client demand and resource requirements. The Kikoda team plans to celebrate the grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new location.

“The decision to expand our operations was the next step in Kikoda’s business growth strategy,” said Matt Dufek, Kikoda President and CEO. “As we increase our ability to service current and future markets, we credit the unwavering talent and strength of our team, as well as our clients for their continued support throughout the years.”

Located in Summit East Technology Park and more than doubling the office footprint, the new space gives Kikoda’s team and clients larger collaborative and multifunctional spaces, upgraded amenities, and integrated technology throughout. The new lake-side location also consists of sand volleyball courts, walking paths, and nearby eateries to promote a health-first work environment, provide strong teambuilding opportunities, and nurture the company’s positive company culture.

“It’s a fantastic space that offers our team and visitors the opportunity for creativity and innovation,” said Chris Korta, Kikoda Executive Vice President. “Tallahassee is rich with talent and its technology sector continues to attract and retain top talent. Our hope is that by adding to the landscape of high-tech workspaces, we can help support and nurture the area’s skilled IT pipeline.”

Kikoda was an early adopter of a hybrid workplace model, giving their staff the option to work either partially or fully remotely since opening their doors in 2016. The new, expanded location is designed to function as both a workspace for staff who choose to work on-site, and as a venue to host other IT businesses and local organizations.

“We are creating a modern, multifunctional space that allows our teams to deliver quality, cutting-edge tech solutions in an environment that compliments their many talents, “ Dufek added. “It’s a place be inspired and feel empowered, together.”
