At just 26 square miles, Arlington may be a small county geographically, but it makes up for it by turning out way more than its fair share of awesome companies! Thirty-three Arlington companies made this year's Inc. 5000 along with six in the Inc. 500, two prestigious groupings of America's fastest-growing companies. The annual report evaluates fast-growing innovative companies; in fact, the companies on this year’s list amassed a collective $206.2 billion in revenue last year – that's up 158% from numbers just three years ago. It’s quite an honor to see so many Arlington companies highlighted on this prestigious list.
Topping our list this year is Stealth ISS Group, a first-time winner in the IT management space whose revenues have grown 2573% since 2014. IT strategy company Indev wasn’t far behind with 2418% growth, and Crystal City-based Bytecubed recorded 2353% growth in the last three years. All three were in Inc.’s top 200 businesses. Additionally, Arlington-based Storyblocks, a fast-growing media tech company and recipient of an Arlington County Gazelle Grant, cracked the 5000 list for the seventh time in 2017.
Take a look at the full list of the Arlington companies who made the cut! We are proud and honored that these companies continue to choose Arlington as the place to grow their business!
