Authenticx has grown 1,672% in the last 3 years according to the INC 5000 list. 

That was enough growth to land Amy Brown and her band of Authentizens at number 349 on the list, making them the fastest growing private company in Indiana. 

Authenticx has raised more than $28 million in venture funding. But it wasn’t too long ago Amy Brown walked the Monon trail listening to an audiobook to learn what venture capital was.

Amy Brown is the Founder and CEO of Authenticx, a machine learning software that analyzes millions of conversations to find tendencies and trends that healthcare organizations use to make educated decisions. 

The business has more than 100 employees (or Authentizens), and is growing like crazy. We’re excited to have Amy on the show to learn from the growth and challenges she has faced as a successful mom and startup entrepreneur.
