    Largest tech company in every state

    The rise of the tech industry in the United States over the past several decades has been staggering. Businesses whose primary function is to produce or sell tech and tech services are on the rise, with Silicon Valley in California’s Bay Area serving as the epicenter of this rapid development. Unfortunately, the financial transgressions of these companies can have a major impact on the American stock market, with significant ripples often traced back to a few heavy-hitters. Every state is home to technology companies in some capacity—do you know the largest one in yours?

    “Tech means more than just producing hardware or software,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, told The New York Times. “It is synonymous with with innovation, research and development, and long-term thinking.”

    With that in mind, Stacker used data compiled by Utopia Global to look at companies developing new technology in communications, IT software, health care, aviation, or data solutions.

    Read on to discover the largest tech company in your state.
