fast growing companies

August 20, 2018

Last week, Inc. magazine released its annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies. More than 120 companies in the San Diego metro made the list, including EDC investor Innovative Commercial Environments. Other EDC partners on the list include Fuse Integration, Cloudbeds (which recently inked a partnership with Airbnb), Passion Planner, and more.

Notably, San Diego-based Scientist.com made the top 10, with 15,267.8 percent revenue growth. Scientist is a B2B marketplace that connects major pharmaceutical companies and the National Institutes of Health with research scientists.

The Inc. 5000 list ranks companies by revenue growth from 2015 through 2017 for companies that are U.S.-based, privately-held, for profit, and independent with 2017 revenues greater than $2 million. The 126 San Diego companies on the list totaled more than $2.4 billion in annual revenue in 2017.

This list shows San Diego's businesses are gaining steam. While we're home to one percent of the nation's privately-held businesses, San Diego companies make up 2.5 percent of this year's Inc. 5000 list.
