The Fastest-Growing Private Companies program was launched 17 years ago by the Puget Sound Business Journal to identify and recognize companies speeding to the top of their industries. To be eligible, companies must: be privately held and headquartered in Washington; have at least $500,000 in net revenue in 2008; show an overall growth from 2008 to 2010 fiscal years; and agree to share their net operating revenues with Puget Sound Business Journal.
“The companies that make this list are, by definition, among the most dynamic in our region,” said Business Journal Publisher Gordon Prouty. “Especially this year, they have beaten the odds imposed by the Great Recession, making membership on this elite list all the more impressive. These companies are showing all of us what qualities it takes to grow in challenging times.”
The 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies are listed, with select companies profiled, in a special publication of the Business Journal on Oct. 14.
