Inc. magazine has yet again ranked Pedigree Technologies on its seventh annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“To make it on the Inc 500|5000 list for the second year in a row is an outstanding achievement for Pedigree,” said Alex Warner, Founder & CEO of Pedigree Technologies. “This award reflects the hard work and dedication of our employees who directly contributed to Pedigree’s success. Our rapid growth speaks not only to demand for this technology, but to the quality and innovation of our web-based software and services which streamline a companies’ operations.”
The Fargo-based technology company operates in the fast growing sector of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology.

“We are truly honored by this recognition, which is directly attributable to our incredible employees, outstanding product and loyal customers,” Warner added.
This year, the median company on the list saw a 142 percent increase since 2010, with the average business growing by 468 percent. Over 520,000 jobs were created by the companies in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $241 billion. Results like these were only dreamed about in past years.
“The Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in its history. To rank among the 2013 Inc. 5000, your company had to thrive through three of the toughest years this economy has seen in living memory. Your success in such times is eloquent testimony to your team’s creativity, resilience, and tenacity. You should be proud of all Pedigree has achieved to date,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
