Inc. Magazine Unveils 2021’s Fastest-Growing Companies in Texas
Agency Partner Interactive Ranks No. 71 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 Series FOR 158% Revenue Growth
DALLAS, March 16, 2021 – Today Inc. magazine announced that Agency Partner Interactive is No. 71 on its Inc. 5000 Regionals: Texas list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Texas-based private companies. This is Agency Partner’s second year in a row being named to this list. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Texas economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“We survived the pandemic by focusing on our customers and enabling their businesses to creatively aquire new revenue through expert digital marketing services and impactful online experiences,” said Muhammad Younus, founder and CEO.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Texas. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 210 percent, and, in 2019 alone, they employed 44,000 people and added $9 billion to the Texas economy. Relative to the 2020 list, those companies added $11 billion to the economy, so even though this list is down by $2 billion, it does represent a collection of businesses that are battle-tested and resilient. Companies based in the largest metro areas—Dallas, Houston, and Austin—brought in the highest revenue overall.

“This list proves the power of companies in Texas no matter the industry,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Their impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”
