Award Recognizing Top 40 Fastest-Growing Middle-Market Companies in Georgia Follows Recent Honors from Atlanta Business Chronicle and Atlanta Journal-Constitution
ATLANTA, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- PrizePicks, the pioneering operator of Single Player Fantasy (SPF) in North America, was named the 2nd-fastest growing middle-market company in Georgia Tuesday night as part of the Atlanta National Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Fast 40 List.
The companies on this prestigious list are for-profit, headquartered in Georgia, and verified year-end revenues ranging from $15 to $500 million and make up the lower and upper middle-market categories. PrizePicks was honored among notable technology companies such as SalesLoft, FlockSafety, FullStory and Qgenda, all of which have received significant venture capital and private equity support.
"These 40 companies represent almost 11,000 new jobs and over $3.1 billion in revenue growth over the last three years," said Michelle Galvani, chairperson of the Georgia Fast 40 Awards and Executive Managing Director with Wildmor Advisors. "In speaking with many of the CEOs, the supportive business environment and accessibility of capital are contributors to growth."
The ACG Fast 40 list is the latest Georgia-based distinction that PrizePicks has received in recent months. In April, PrizePicks was named the 2nd-fastest growing technology company in Metro Atlanta as part of the Atlanta Business Chronicle's Pacesetter awards. In March, PrizePicks was named a Top Workplace of 2022 by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Driving this string of laurels has been PrizePicks' unyielding commitment to the greater Atlanta region - Georgia makes up more than 100,000 members of the PrizePicks database. Much of the company's marketing strategy, for example, has been rooted in recent local partnerships with the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, MLB's Atlanta Braves and eSports franchise Ghost Gaming. The company recruits heavily at local universities such as the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, and Emory University, and currently employs more than 60 Georgia natives overall.
"The PrizePicks member base extends across the country, but we will always be, first and foremost, a Georgia company," said Wexler, who was named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle's 40 Under 40 list in 2021. "As important as it is for us to be the leading sports gaming platform, it's just as critical to be a B2C leader for the Atlanta tech corridor and these awards reflect that commitment."
