Inc. Magazine Unveils 36th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

Proactive Technologies Named For 5th Time to 2017 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies

NEW YORK, NY, August 16, 2017 – Inc. magazine ranked Proactive Technologies, a leading technology services provider, number 3876 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Proactive Technologies has been named to the list for the 5th time, earning a spot on the 2017 Honor Roll – a distinction which fewer than a tenth of Inc. 5000 honorees achieve. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses.

The list showcases smaller, successful companies that represent the growth engine of the American economy.

To be selected, Inc. evaluated Proactive Technologies three year revenue growth from 2013 to 2016. Proactive grew 75% during this period.

“We as a company are very honored to be the recipient of this award for the fifth time” said Dave Cava, Principal and Co-Founder of Proactive Technologies. “I am proud of my team for working hard to achieve this honor for the company. We are happy to be in this small percentage of companies that achieve this ranking.”

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
