HAMMOND – A software development company housed in Southeastern Louisiana University's Business Incubator has been listed in "Inc. Magazine's" list of 5,000 fastest growing businesses in the country.
Envōc, which specializes in custom software, Web and mobile application development, saw 141 percent growth in 2013 and was ranked 18th out of 41 Louisiana companies that made the national listing. Envōc was listed as number 2,652 nationally.
In addition to its offices in the Southeastern Business Incubator, Envōc also maintains an office in Baton Rouge.
Envōc founder and president Calvin Fabre said having so many Louisiana companies on the list speaks highly of the entrepreneurial spirit and determination that exists in the state.
"We are proud to be counted among this group," he said. "We owe our continued success to the passionate and talented professionals added to our team, thanks in no small part, to the relationship we have with Southeastern and our tenancy in the Small Business Development Center Incubator."
Envōc partners with the university's Department of Computer Science and Industrial Technology to provide internships and job opportunities for the university's students and graduates.
