The Boston Business Journal has named DockYard, a digital product consultancy empowering human-centered brands to craft impactful user experiences, to its exclusive 2020 Fast 50 list, which represents the 50 fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts.

The Fast 50 companies are selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth from 2016 to 2019.

“While our team is distributed across the nation, our roots remain firmly planted in Boston’s thriving innovation community where we were founded,” said Jon Lacks, CEO of DockYard. “We’re honored to be named alongside industry trailblazers and strive to support other businesses inspired to innovate during these uncertain times.”

The numbers were crunched and analyzed by the Business Journal’s research department and by the media company’s Fast 50 partner, Withum.

“At a time when positive business news is hard to come by, the privately held companies included among this year’s Fast 50 have something to celebrate indeed,” Carolyn M. Jones, market president and publisher of the Boston Business Journal, said. “The COVID-19 crisis has changed the way we work and live; and like many others, we have reimagined our event and content to ensure the health and safety of all. Our celebration, originally scheduled to be held on May 20, is now expected to be held in November.”

A Fast 50 special publication is scheduled to run in the May 22 weekly edition of the Business Journal. A second publication, complete with rankings by revenue, will be published in conjunction with the Fast 50 event at the Aloft Hotel Seaport in South Boston, where rankings will be announced.

Companies on the Fast 50 must have their headquarters in Massachusetts and must have reported revenue of at least $500,000 in 2016 and $1 million in 2019 were considered.
