Diverse Computing Recognized Nationally and Locally for Growth
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Diverse Computing is once again being recognized for its growth and innovation. The thriving Tallahassee tech company was named in Inc. magazine’s 2017 Inc. 5000, a comprehensive list of the fastest growing businesses in the United States. Diverse Computing was also named to Florida State University’s inaugural Seminole 100, which recognizes the fastest-growing, Seminole-owned businesses in the U.S. The Seminole 100 is presented by FSU along with Inc. magazine, the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, and the FSU Alumni Association.
With such impressive growth, many companies might find it difficult to maintain their core values. Diverse Computing is proud to preserve the small-company culture that earned them a positive reputation in their community. Sometimes referred to as the “Google of Tallahassee,” DCI also placed 12th in this year’s Florida Trend Best Companies to Work For in Florida list. The all-around success of the software company is due to its world-class customer support paired with intentional recruiting strategies and progressive company culture.
Dan Percy, president of Diverse Computing, graduated from FSU’s College of Business in 1997 and has been working at the tech company since its inception in 2001. “We are honored to be formally recognized by Inc. and FSU,” he said. “Diverse Computing takes pride in delivering one-of-a-kind support to our clients while fostering a unique office culture for our employees. High customer and employee satisfaction are the foundation of our success, and the main drivers of our accelerated growth.”
The entrants for the Inc. 5000 are evaluated on their growth over a three-year span. Diverse Computing experienced a 44% growth rate between 2013 and 2016, making it one of the fastest growing companies in Florida, which is the third-fastest growing state on the list.
In order to qualify for the 2017 Inc. 5000, companies must be privately-owned, based in the United States, and independently run. They must have also had a 2016 revenue of no less than $2 million. To qualify for the Seminole 100, companies must also be owned or majority managed by an FSU alum.
“The Seminole 100 is an important initiative that recognizes entrepreneurial excellence,” said Randy Blass, Executive Director of the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship. “It is open to all companies owned by FSU alumni who meet eligibility criteria, and recognizes those who are achieving growth, innovating, and making a difference in their communities.”
Diverse Computing will be formally recognized for its Seminole 100 status at a ceremony on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at FSU’s University Center Club.
