Fastest Growing Program

The Fastest Growing Awards will recognize the top 20 fastest growing private companies based on 3-year revenue growth in four categories:

  • $250,000 – $5 Million
  • $5 Million – $25 Million
  • $25 Million – $75 Million
  • $75 Million & Above

This information will be in PBN’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list, which publishes in September in our special section on the state’s Fastest Growing & Innovative Companies.  This list is ranked by revenue-growth percentage from 2017-2019 and there is no cost to participate.  

By applying, you give PBN permission to publish your company’s revenue for the last three years. If your company makes the top 5 in any revenue category, we will ask you to confirm the revenue figures you submitted with an official document (such as financial statements or tax documents, although we will not publish anything other than your topline figure). If you are selected as one of the top five in any revenue category, you will be contacted by a PBN reporter and/or photographer for a company profile that will be published in a special section.

Application deadline is July 24th
