CardFlight named to Inc. 5000 for fourth consecutive year

Company's fast growth recognized by Inc. four years in a row.
August 17, 2021

We're pleased to announce today that CardFlight is included on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list. This year marks CardFlight’s fourth consecutive year on the list, an award program published by Inc. to acknowledge the 5,000 fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States.

Increased adoption of SwipeSimple for curbside and contactless payment fueled 2020 growth.

The 2021 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. In making the 2021 list, CardFlight joins an increasingly select group of top private companies nationwide that have received the award four times, demonstrating the company’s sustained growth.  

CardFlight founder and CEO, Derek Webster, says:

Last year brought unforeseen challenges, especially for small businesses, the primary customer of CardFlight. Being a part of the Inc. 5000 for the fourth year is an honor not only because we’ve had sustained growth, but because it represents the tenacity and resilience of our team and of our partners.

We’ve been humbled to see our hard work and passion for supporting small business owners be recognized by Inc. every year since CardFlight first became eligible. We look forward to continuing to serve our customers and collaborating with our partners to help small businesses across America grow.
