Kikoda Makes the Inc. Regionals List for Second Consecutive Year

Tallahassee-based IT company recognized again as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the Southeast.

Inc. Magazine revealed its annual Inc. Regionals Southeast list, ranking Kikoda at No. 78, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing companies based in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Tennessee. This is the second consecutive year Kikoda received the recognition.

Kikoda’s high ranking on the 2022 Inc. Regionals Southeast was determined by the company’s continued growth rates, highlighting Kikoda’s three-year growth of 175 percent. This regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Southeast region economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.

We are very proud to be recognized for the second year in a row on the Inc. Regionals Southeast list,” said Matt Dufek, Kikoda President and CEO. “We join so many other exceptional job creators, innovators, and disrupters in a dynamic business landscape never seen before.“

As Kikoda continues its rapid expansion to meet growing demand, the growth of Kikoda’s employee base, which saw an increase of 63 percent over the last three years, allows the company to continue bringing new products and services to clients nationwide with exceptional consistency.

“We set our clients up for success in the long term by empowering them from the very start, it’s time to end gatekeeping in IT”, Dufek added. “The “Kikoda Way” is what truly makes us unique from other shops – we approach each client with the “EmpowerIT” mind-set by up-skilling their internal teams and educating them throughout the entire lifespan of the project. We build trust along with reliable software, a lost art in the industry today.”

Dufek notes that Kikoda’s proven expertise in custom software development, data analytics, cloud services, and team scaling allows his team to bring successful and innovative project deliveries to partners across the country in a range of industries including: insurance, healthcare, finance, agriculture, genetics. As a GSA Schedule 70 vendor, Kikoda also provides technical services to governmental agencies.

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.”
