Meteor Learning named a 2021 Fast 50 Company
by Boston Business Journal for Second Consecutive Year

Wakefield, MA – March 30, 2021 – The Boston Business Journal has named Meteor Learning, a leader in the development of employer-aligned, competency-based educational programs for adult learners to its exclusive 2021 Fast 50 list, which represents the 50 fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts. This is Meteor Learning’s second consecutive year on the list. In 2020, the Company was ranked second on the list.

“This recognition is the result of the commitment of the Meteor team, our higher education and employer partners, who despite 2020 being an unprecedented and challenging year remained committed to our “students first” mission,” said William Rieders, Chief Executive Officer, Meteor Learning. “The Meteor team has come together in an incredible way this past year, and I’m so proud of the strides we have made towards closing the skills gap.”

The Fast 50 companies are selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. The numbers were crunched and analyzed by the Business Journal’s research department.

“The economic shutdown sent a lot of companies’ strategies and financials into uncharted territory in 2020, but as the Fast 50 illustrates, Greater Boston’s fastest-growth companies pivoted and prospered despite it all,” Carolyn M. Jones, market president and publisher of the Boston Business Journal.

A Fast 50 special publication is scheduled to run in the May 21 weekly edition of the Business Journal and online that week as well. A private virtual honoree celebration to honor this year’s Fast 50 is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, May 19, where the rankings will be released.

Companies on the Fast 50 must have their headquarters in Massachusetts and must have reported revenue of at least $500,000 in 2017, and $1 million in 2020 were considered. (Unlike in past years, due to the pandemic, companies were not disqualified from the ranking if they experienced a net loss during one of the years analyzed, provided growth from 2017 to 2020 was positive.)
