We will continue to put our readers first, and look forward to what the future has in store.”
The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Midwest region. Between 2019 and 2021, these 202 private companies had an average growth rate of 535 percent and, in 2021 alone, they added 22,750 jobs and nearly $13.9 billion to the Midwest region’s economy. Companies based in the Chicago, Illinois, Noblesville, Indiana, and Overland Park, Kansas areas had the highest growth rates overall.
