fastest-growing technology companies!

Sept. 22nd @ 6PM at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens
The annual New Mexico Flying 40 program recognizes and ranks the state's high-tech growth leaders.

 

Is your firm one of New Mexico's fastest-growing technology companies?

The New Mexico Technology Flying 40 program will continue its legacy in recognizing and celebrating New Mexico's fastest-growing technology companies! The 24th annual New Mexico Technology Flying 40 event will be held September 2021. 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 2021 stated, "As New Mexico comes out of almost 18 months of Covid, it's important to recognize the people who provided the leadership in maintaining New Mexico's economy. These private sector companies faced mind bending problems, yet they stayed open and provided quality jobs for thousands of New Mexicans. A truly remarkable achievement."

You can find out by applying for the annual New Mexico Flying 40 program, which recognizes and ranks the state's high-tech growth leaders. The 2021 listing will be compiled from voluntary responses to the qualification questions.
