Cities like Nashville, Charlotte, Austin, and Miami have all seen massive spikes in technology startups or busienss migrations over the past few years. However, Boston still remains at the top of the technology leaderboard with a steady source of top talent graduating from the area schools each year and an innovative mindset towards school, technology, and science in general. Boston is a perfect culmination of talent and opportunity which has allowed for many companies to thrive in the area.

This list is only reserved for parent companies headquartered in Massachusetts or Greater Boston, not subsidiaries or sub-brands. The goal of this list is to focus on Boston Based companies who have stayed true to their Boston and New England roots by staying headquartered and not moving like Facebook and Dropbox. These are not actually part of subsidiaries or larger companies headquartered elsewhere. You can see old lists from 2020 and 2016 here.

Of course Trellis tops the list… but here are the top tech companies going into 2022 headquartered in the Boston area so far:
