Here Are the 130 Fastest-Growing Companies in Md.

Growth is something everyone can aspire to, and that’s no different for America’s most successful new companies. Inc., a magazine which publishes weekly content about small businesses and startups in the United States, recently released its annual report outlining the 5,000 fastest-growing privately owned companies in the nation.

Companies were ranked according to their percentage revenue growth from 2015 to 2018, according to the report. Maryland has 130 of the most successful new companies in the country.

The 5,000 companies come from over 25 different types of industry, including construction, real estate, and software. To earn a spot on the list, companies must have been generating revenue by March 31, 2015, and then had a minimum revenue of $2 million by 2018. Additionally, all the companies are privately held, for profit, and independent from any other larger company, according to Inc.
