“We are very proud to get this back-to-back recognition,” said co-founder and CompuMatrice Chairman of the Board Anirban Dutta. “My co-founder, Sandeep Junaghare, and I never envisioned this when we started a two-person software application development firm in 2011 out of the TechFW incubator (http://techfortworth.org/), which grew to a multi-million dollar business with offices in Dallas and Pune, India.

According to Inc. magazine, only one in three companies make the list twice in a row.

“This is your second time on the Inc. 5000, which is truly an extraordinary accomplishment,” wrote James Ledbetter, editor-in-chief of Inc. Media.” Making the list gets harder every year as your starting base grows.”

The past three years, CompuMatrice has invested heavily in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain, working with select startups, small- and mid-size businesses to create enterprise-level, multi-platform apps that utilizes AI and Blockchain.
