Inc. 5000’s most successful U.S. companies

The Dallas-Fort Worth has the most companies out of the Texas metro areas on the Inc. 5000 list with 191, beating Houston’s 119 and Austin’s 103.

Allata, which is in the IT system development industry, ranked the highest for the DFW area at No. 40. The Dallas-based company was founded in 2014 and has had more than 6,000 percent growth over the past three years.

Fortune 100’s fastest-growing businesses

  • No. 2—Texas Pacific Land Trust
  • No. 8—Nexstar Media Group
  • No. 38—Match Group

While Inc.’s list includes only U.S. private companies, the Fortune 100 list is exclusively public companies trading on a major U.S. stock exchange that don’t have to be U.S.-based. The Fortune 100 businesses must have had a minimum revenue of $50 million and a net income of $10 million from the four quarters previous to May 2019. The overall rankings are the sum of the growth of revenues, profits, and stock returns during a three-year period.

Six of the recognized DFW companies are newcomers to the list and six also beat the S&P 500 three-year return. Irving’s Nexstar Media Group managed to raise its ranking this year from No. 36 to No. 8 and also made the Fortune 500 list. 

Dallas’ Texas Pacific Land Trust out-ranked major companies including Netflix,, and Facebook. The only company that ranked higher than the real estate-related business was Momo, an internet services and retailing company headquartered in Beijing, China.
