The Boston Business Journal today announced its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts. This ranking will be published in the April 22 weekly edition of the Business Journal and will include 76 companies — the top 50 of which will be recognized at an event on April 21 called “Fast 50,” formerly known as “Pacesetters.”
The list includes the privately held businesses in Massachusetts that recorded the fastest revenue growth from 2012 through 2015. To be considered, companies needed a baseline of $1 million in revenue for 2015 and at least $500,000 in revenue for 2012. Companies that saw revenue drop between 2014 and 2015 were excluded. The list also excludes schools, hospitals and nonprofits.
“These companies represent the best examples of the Boston economy’s strength and vibrancy,” Boston Business Journal Publisher and Market President Carolyn M. Jones said. “This kind of top-line growth is driving the state’s economy and generating the kind of excitement that attracts global brands and their talent here.”
The 2016 Fast 50 will be celebrated at an April 21 breakfast event at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront in Boston, which will feature a countdown of the top 50 fastest-growing companies on this year’s list.
