By February 1, 2019 Blog, Featured, ICT, Small Biz

If you’re a growing Loudoun business striving for one of the nation’s most prestigious and beneficial accolades, look no further than the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in America List.

The publisher has announced that it has opened up the competition for 2019, and applications are due by March 31, 2019.

Since 1982, the Inc. 5000 has honored the extraordinary journeys of the fastest-growing private enterprises in America, ranking companies by revenue growth over a three-year period.

Distinguished companies such as Microsoft, Google, Yelp, Pandora, and many other leaders of industry gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Last year, 31 Loudoun businesses were represented on the Inc. 5000 list, a significant jump from the 23 Loudoun companies recognized in 2017.

An exceptionally exciting statistic from Loudoun’s 2018 Inc. class is that their reported business growth over three years averaged at an incredible 633 percent!

To put that figure in context, they experienced almost 100 percent more growth over three years than the national average of all Inc. 5000 businesses!

It’s no wonder Loudoun County has been No. 1 in business growth in Virginia for three years in a row (according to SmartAsset).

Since rules were made to make the game fun, there ARE certain qualifications necessary to be eligible for such a recognition. In order to apply for the 2019 Inc. 5000, your company must meet each of the following criteria:

  • Be privately-owned, based in the United States, independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company);
  • Have started earning revenue by March 31, 2015;
  • Had revenue no less than $100,000 in 2015;
  • Had revenue no less than $2,000,000 in 2018;
  • Had revenue in 2018 that exceeded revenue in 2015.

If your Loudoun business matches these criteria, then why wouldn’t you want to apply?

Just a few benefits of making the Inc. 5000 list include positive national, local and industry media exposure; increased credibility with prospects and investors, and improved recruiting prowess among competitors.

Even the small benefits, such as adding an Inc. 5000 recognition image to your email signature, helps validate your place among the distinguished businesses who collectively in 2018 achieved $206.2 billion in revenue and produced 664,095 jobs.

As an exceptional person and company you deserve to be recognized for achieving business growth, creating jobs, and positively impacting your community.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join the ranks of proud Loudoun businesses on the Inc. 5000 list for 2019.
