With a Two-Year Revenue Growth of 118 Percent, Passage Ranks No. 89 on Inc. Magazine’s List of the Midwest Region’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 Regionals Midwest list had a total of $11.7 billion in revenue


DETROIT, MICH. – Inc. magazine this week revealed that Passage is No. 89 on its third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals Midwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies based in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Midwest region economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.

“It’s an honor to be named among the fastest-growing companies in the Midwest,” said Alex Linebrink, CEO of Passage. “I’m so proud of our team. Even in the midst of a pandemic, they built the technology that was vital to keep small event businesses running smoothly with virtual or socially distanced attendance. I attribute our growth to the work they’ve done to disrupt the broken ticketing industry and build technology that offers events and ticket purchasers a better alternative to the traditional big box providers. We’re thrilled to be recognized for the impact we’ve made so far, and we look forward to soaring to the next level from here.”

The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Midwest region. Between 2018 and 2020, these 144 private companies added 19,821 jobs and nearly $11.7 billion to the Midwest region’s economy. Companies based in the Chicago, Illinois, Noblesville, Indiana, and Overland Park, Kansas, areas had the highest growth rate overall.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Regionals Midwest, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/midwest starting March 15, 2022.

“This year’s Inc. 5000 Regional winners represent one of the most exceptional and exciting lists of America’s off-the-charts growth companies. They’re disrupters and job creators, and all delivered an outsize impact on the economy. Remember their names and follow their lead. These are the companies you’ll be hearing about for years to come,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc.
