BizSense’s list of Richmond’s fastest-growing companies is back for its sixth year and we’re putting out the annual call to local businesses that are on a hot streak.
Applications are now open for the RVA 25, which each year ranks and celebrates Richmond-based companies with the highest average annual revenue growth over the last three calendar years – in this case, 2015-2017.
As always, it’s free to participate and the list is open to seasoned and up-and-coming companies. Applicants must be based in Richmond, have been in business during the three-year period and have had a minimum of $500,000 in annual revenue in 2017.
Applicants must simply fill out the brief survey at this link and submit supporting financial documents to local accounting firm Keiter, which tabulates the percentages used in the final rankings.
Financial documents will not be shared with Richmond BizSense or anyone else. Only the final ranking percentage will be shared with the public. Applicants also have the option of publicly sharing their 2017 annual revenue on the list.
The deadline for applications is Aug. 10, so please don’t hesitate to begin the process.
The final rankings will be published in a list Sept. 24, followed by an invite-only celebration of the 25 firms in early October, all to be presented by our presenting Sands Anderson.
