Annual List Recognizes the Twin Cities’ Fastest Growing Private Companies

To be eligible for the Fast 50, companies must be independently owned, privately held, for-profit businesses headquartered in the Twin Cities 24-county metro area.

Participating companies had to submit financial statements for verification by the Business Journal’s accounting partner.   

“Being named to the Fast 50 list is one of those ‘pinch me’ moments as a founder,” stated Authentic Founder and CEO, Jennifer Zick. “It is tangible evidence that a humble spark of an idea has become a real, measurable, value-creating, purpose-driven business. I’m truly blessed and we are all so honored for Authentic to be recognized! We extend our congratulations to all of the deserving honorees, and my personal, heartfelt thank you to our team and to our clients who have made this growth possible and achieving this milestone so meaningful.”
