The New Mexico Technology Flying 40 program will continue its legacy in recognizing and celebrating New Mexico’s fastest-growing technology companies! The 21st annual New Mexico Technology Flying 40 event will be held June 2018. Program sponsors will be inviting businesses from around the state to be recognized among the state’s high-tech growth leaders.

The annual listing celebrates technology entrepreneurs and the contribution they make to New Mexico’s economy. Sherman McCorkle, President and CEO of the Sandia Science & Technology Park Development Corp. (SSTPDC), who will host the program in 2018 stated, “As the New Mexico economy enters an impressive growth phase, I think it is important to recognize not only the companies that laid the foundation, but also those who are leading our recovery. With aggregate revenues of $927 million, these companies deserve our recognition. SSTPDC is excited to carry on the legacy of the program.”

The 2017 listing was compiled from voluntary responses. Eligibility was determined in three categories: top revenue growth companies with revenues between $1 million and $10 million; top revenue growth companies with revenues of more than $10 million; and top revenue-producing technology companies irrespective of revenue growth.
