Online marketing firm and New Orleans based company, Search Influence, was named in the first ever Flyover 50, a list compiled by Five Elms Capital to highlight the 50 fastest-growing companies in the middle of the country. They were the only New Orleans company that made the list. To be honored as a member, companies based within a 20-state area in the Central US had to have an annual revenue greater than $1 million in 2011.
The idea for the Flyover 50 came from the vast majority of both media coverage and capital is on the east and west coasts, and often skips the middle of the country. There are hard working and innovative people all over the country. Flyover 50 recognizes and celebrates those entrepreneurial people building the fast-growing companies. This list hopes to encourage those movers and shakers on either coast to land in the 20 central states once in a while.
The complete list of fastest growing companies is available here.
