Between 2018 and 2020, these 144 private companies had an average growth rate of 147 percent and, in 2020 alone, added 19,821 jobs and nearly $11.7 billion to the midwest region’s economy. Companies based in the Chicago, Illinois, Noblesville, Indiana and Overland Park, Kansas, areas had the highest growth rate overall.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Regionals Midwest, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area and other criteria, can be found online starting March 15, 2022.
“This year’s Inc. 5000 Regional winners represent one of the most exceptional and exciting lists of America’s off-the-charts growth companies.
