Starkville’s own Glo, makers of light-up toys and cubes, was recently recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the nation. CEO Hagan Walker had this to say: “Making the list constitutes I think it’s the top 0.5% of the fastest-growing private companies in America,” Walker said. “For us as a small company in Starkville, Mississippi, that started out of a classroom project, that’s pretty cool to be in that top percent.”
They opened for business in 2015 and have been growing ever since, selling a variety of products within their special niche and even selling internationally: “We are being more prevalent as an omnichannel company, meaning that you’re not just relying on one sales channel,” Walker said. “For us, we’ve really made a lot of strides with that.” While they have their own storefronts online and at street level, they also sell their products at both Mom & Pop shops and through larger retailers such as Macy’s, Kohl’s and Nordstrom.
