Kikoda Ranked in Top 20% of Fastest-Growing Businesses in America

Tallahassee-based IT company, Kikoda, was recognized yet again by Inc. Magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000 Nationals List. The company came in at No. 798, landing in the Top 20% of the fastest-growing private companies in the Nation. What’s more, the company also ranked #2 of IT Systems Development companies in the state of Florida, and #3 of all companies in Tallahassee, FL where they are headquartered. The ranking was determined by the Inc. 5000 Nationals list, highlighting Kikoda’s three-year growth of 607 percent.

Previously, Kikoda was ranked in the Top 25 on the Inc. 5000 Florida Regionals list in March 2021. The recognition comes as Kikoda continues its rapid expansion providing superior software and IT solutions. The rising IT company celebrates its five-year anniversary this December.

“Reflecting upon our achievements over the last 5 years, it is hard to put a finger on any one thing we’re doing which has brought us so much success”, said Matt Dufek, Kikoda President and CEO. “Ultimately, we’re just a collection of passionate IT professionals with a common purpose: to provide our customers with the best solutions in a transparent and ethical way.”

“Being recognized on the national level is extremely exciting and humbling”, said Chris Korta, Kikoda Executive Vice President. “I believe that the growth we are experiencing is a direct result of the pride that Kikoda’s staff brings to their work every single day.”

This prestigious recognition also takes into account the expansion of Kikoda’s company size, which saw an increase of 417 percent over the last three years. This growth has allowed the company to continue to bring new, innovative products and services to partners on a national scale. This is the first year Kikoda was eligible to receive the recognition.

Dufek added, “We are incredibly grateful for the continued trust our clients have in our team and the innovative IT services we deliver. This recognition is a testament to their success as well as ours.”

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.”
