Inc. 5000 Ranks Softeq among US Fastest-Growing Companies for the 2nd Year in a Row

We feel proud and grateful to be part of the 2019 Inc. 5000 list, and admire the magazine’s mission to provide an objective overview of the dynamics in the American entrepreneurial landscape.

Between 2015 and 2018, Softeq achieved a 276% revenue increase, and ranks number 1501 among the honorees. The majority of growth has come organically as the company has expanded business with existing clients and added new clients to its roster of blue-chip technology companies and startups seeking technical software, firmware, and hardware development services. Softeq serves its global client base through offices in Houston, Minsk, Belarus and Munich, Germany.

“In 1997, Softeq was established as a one-person business. Today we are a full-stack, full-cycle software and hardware development team of more than 300 capable of engineering end-to-end solutions from scratch, transforming analog businesses to digital, and designing technology systems that scale for growth globally. We have always anticipated IT trends, and now focus on the highest growth segments in hardware and software: the Internet of Things, immersive technologies, Machine Learning, blockchain, robotics, and industrial automation. This — alongside the ability to solve business-specific problems faced by our customers — defines us as a company. We feel proud and grateful to be part of the 2019 Inc. 5000 list, and admire the magazine’s mission to provide an objective overview of the dynamics in the American entrepreneurial landscape,” says Christopher A. Howard, Softeq Development Corporation Founder and CEO.
