New Mexico Flying 40

Virtual Celebration 2020

The annual New Mexico Flying 40 program recognizes and ranks the state’s high-tech growth leaders.

Join us for a virtual celebration! We will be hosting several new elements on our website recognizing New Mexico’s fastest-growing technology companies.

Once awardees are selected, we will provide an online Photo Gallery recognizing each of the award companies. Our event photographer will be taking photos of the awardees at a location of their choice. Arrangements to follow.

Additionally we will host a virtual award book highlighting each of the companies, their services, and revenue growth % based on a four period, years 2015 thru 2019.

Full coverage of the New Mexico Technology Flying 40 program and the 2020 Flying 40 will be provided in a special edition of the Albuquerque Journal’s Business Outlook on Monday, October 26th, 2020.

The New Mexico Technology Flying 40 program will continue its legacy in recognizing and celebrating New Mexico’s fastest-growing technology companies. This is the 23rd year of the program. 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 Corporation (SSTPDC), who will host the program in 2020 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 recovery. With aggregate revenues close to $1 Billion, these companies deserve our recognition. SSTPDC is excited to carry on the legacy of the program.”
