TripBam, the hotel shopping, benchmarking and analytics provider, has been named one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the Dallas area by the SMU Cox Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship. The annual rankings are based on percentage growth and absolute dollar growth over the previous three years. This year's top 100 companies are based in Dallas and 14 surrounding cities. The Institute, which has honored Dallas businesses for 30 years, plans to hold an in-person gala in March, where it will announce a more comprehensive ranking of the companies in order of growth from No. 100 to No. 1. Steve Reynolds, CEO of TripBam, said that while 2020 hasn’t been easy for the travel industry, “with the ongoing support of clients and partners, we expect to see years of future growth ahead.”
