MIAMI, March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Inc. Magazine today named ClassWallet as number 33 on its third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals Southeast list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies based in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Born from the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, the regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Southeast region economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses. The companies on the list, according to Inc., show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Southeast region. Between 2018 and 2020, these 173 private companies had an average growth rate of 147% and, in 2020 alone, they added 27,794 jobs and nearly $4.9 billion to the Southeast region’s economy. Companies based in the Miami, Fla., Fairhope, Ala., and Covington, La., areas had the highest growth rate overall.
“This year’s Inc. 5000 Regional winners represent one of the most exceptional and exciting lists of America’s off-the-charts growth companies. They’re disruptors and job creators, and all delivered an outsize impact on the economy. Remember their names and follow their lead. These are the companies you’ll be hearing about for years to come,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc.
To keep up with its rapid-paced growth, ClassWallet has just completed a move into new office space in the same Hollywood, Florida building it has been operating from for the last five years. Unlike its previous open floor plan office space, the new facility is equipped with private offices, a space for the company’s customer success team, an expanded conference room, two huddle spaces, a green room to better view and edit support videos, a kitchen and hangout area. Approximately 27 employees will work from the new offices.
“The Inc. 5000 Regionals: Southeast List ranking provides external corroboration of ClassWallet’s growth and trajectory. Last year, we posted record-breaking numbers in both revenue and transaction volume, and we’ve been successful in scaling our digital wallet technology for both school districts and state and federal agencies,” said Jamie Rosenberg, co-founder and CEO, ClassWallet. “Our new office in Hollywood is testament to the fact that our products, people and mission are a powerful combination that will help us to continue the positive growth and momentum we are experiencing.”
