LeasePoint Funding Group Honored as Fastest-Growing Company in the 2022 Aggie 100™
COLLEGE STATION, TX, November 8, 2022 – LeasePoint Funding Group (LeasePoint), an innovative equipment finance company based in Austin, TX, was selected amongst global companies for the 2022 Aggie 100™, which honors the fastest-growing companies owned by Texas A&M University alumni.
LeasePoint was recognized as the number one 2022 Aggie 100 Company with a compound annual growth rate of 379.291%. LeasePoint’s 2022 Aggie100 Honorees were Texas A&M alumni Jeff Markim, owner and Managing Director, and Daniel Totah, CFO. The Aggie 100 is founded and sponsored by the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship at Texas A&M University.
“I was shocked, certainly happy, thrilled to be in the Aggie 100, and then to get the call that we were #1 this year…I would never have thought that. I really am honored, as a lifelong Aggie, to get this award,” Markim remarked.
Like many entrepreneurs, Markim saw a need and sought to fill it. While working in a previous role, Jeff noticed that obtaining funding in many industries was inefficient, and he recognized an opportunity to introduce speed and simplicity.
LeasePoint was born in 2016 as an intermediary for businesses seeking funding and connecting entrepreneurs and lenders. In an industry driven by numbers, Jeff realized the power of being relational rather than transactional. LeasePoint strives to boost client satisfaction, longevity, and retention, which better serves the business in the long run.
Jeff believes the key to successful entrepreneurship is not to fear risks. “Don’t be afraid. If you’re passionate about something and believe in something, go all in.”

Aggie 100™ honors the 100 fastest growing Aggie-owned or -led businesses in the world. In addition, it fosters a network of leaders who inspire the next generation of Aggie entrepreneurs. While there are many ways to define business success, Aggie 100 uses growth rate as an indicator as it reflects a ventures capacity for job creation, product acceptance and entrepreneurial vision.

Nominees are required to provide detailed company information to PKF Texas who then evaluate and rank the nominees based on these requirements. The 100 fastest-growing organizations, or Aggie 100 Honorees, are recognized each fall during an invitation-only reception, awards dinner and after party.
In addition to growth and leadership criteria, companies named to the Aggie 100 must operate in a manner consistent with the Aggie Code of Honor and the values of Texas A&M University.
Aggie 100 has grown significantly from its inception in 2005 and is now being emulated by a number of other top universities, including several of our SEC partners. More than 850 different companies and nearly 1,200 Aggie leaders have been honored in the past 18 years.
