With over 40% growth since 2017, Akorbi is named one of the fastest-growing privately owned businesses in Texas.

It is particularly gratifying to be recognized for fast growth in our home state of Texas and contribute to its large and robust economy,” - CEO and co-founder Claudia Mirza.

Akorbi, a Plano-based group of companies specializing in language, technology and workforce solutions, has been ranked #232 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 Regional Texas Awards. This award recognizes the fastest-growing companies in the state of Texas. Since 2017, Akorbi has experienced over 40% organic growth.

Now a global company, Akorbi is proud to be born and bred in the Lone Star State and has made a significant impact on its booming economy. Inclusivity and diversity are core values for Akorbi, as both a woman-owned and minority business. With the second largest GDP per capita, Texas is one of the most diverse states in the U.S.

Akorbi remains 100% entrepreneurial and continues to increase revenue organically by delivering innovative solutions. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic when face-to-face services were not safe, these included Over the Phone interpreter services (OPI). Qualified interpreters are on call around the clock to provide interpretation needs at a moment’s notice, anywhere in the world, to facilitate communications among employees, clients, and patients, as well as with members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. Customers can also schedule video appointments with interpreters via remote sites or secure locations.

“There have been numerous mergers in our industry. Our strategy has been to increase service offerings organically, to address emerging needs in the marketplace. We are so proud to be recognized in this year’s prestigious Inc. 5000 Regional ranking. It is particularly gratifying to be recognized for fast growth in our home state of Texas and contribute to its large and robust economy,” said CEO and co-founder Claudia Mirza.

A native of Colombia, SA, Claudia has led the company’s rapid evolution, from a language translation company to a global provider of multilingual business solutions -- including interpretation, staffing, contact centers, learning services, and localization. Beyond word for word translation, localization takes cultural norms into account to make sure messaging conveys the appropriate context and nuance.

Akorbi services a wide range of industries, including Healthcare, IT, Finance, Marketing, E-Commerce and Retail, providing a wide range of enterprise solutions to create sustainable jobs and promote economic development in the United States and around the world. In every country in which it operates, the company generates job growth and seeks to empower women. “I’ve always been passionate about advocating for and helping other women who aspire to be business leaders because I understand firsthand the challenges we face,” added Claudia Mirza.

While remaining committed to economic development in the United States, Akorbi also continues to expand its global footprint, with locations in Western and Eastern Africa, India, and a brand-new operations center in Pereira, Colombia.
