Asset Panda is in the Running for Fastest Growing Company in 2020
For the second time, SMU Cox Dallas 100 names Asset Panda among its 100 fastest-growing, privately held
companies in the Dallas Area
FRISCO, TX December 10, 2020 - The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at the Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business recently honored Asset Panda with a coveted spot on their list of the fastestgrowing companies in the Dallas area. The Dallas 100 competition annually gauges the ascension of privately held companies in Dallas and surrounding cities. The release of the top 100 company names is a precursor to an awards celebration that will culminate in the unveiling of this year’s No. 1 fastestgrowing, privately held company.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a member of this remarkable group of companies,” said Rex Kurzius, CEO of Asset Panda. “Our company’s success and growth are a testament to our team’s dedication, resilience and passion for our shared goals. Our efforts are now centered on scalability and launching new features that are inspired by innovation and driven by data and research. We are excited to enter new markets in 2021 as we move closer to our goal of becoming the dominant asset tracking company in the world.”
Traditionally, the Dallas 100 company names are announced alphabetically at an autumn reception, followed a month later by an awards ceremony that is highlighted by a countdown, with Dallas 100 names divulged in order from No. 100 to No. 1. Because of the pandemic, both of this year’s Dallas 100 events will move to the spring.
Caruth Institute Executive Director Simon Mak intends to announce in December the details of a socially-distanced reception and awards gala. “Of course, everything is contingent upon the pandemic, but we are hopeful that we can hold two safe, in-person events: a reception in late January or early February and our traditional Dallas 100 awards gala in early March,” said Mak. “If we’ve learned anything since the onset of COVID-19, it’s that everything is subject to change. While we’ll remain flexible, we’re hopeful that we can gather in person, masks notwithstanding, to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit that is so vital to our economy.”
