RVA 25: A call to the region’s fastest-growing businesses

Richmond BizSense is proud to begin the seventh annual call to applicants for the RVA 25, our list of the region’s fastest-growing companies.

Applications are now open to all locally based businesses looking to be recognized for their growth and contributions to the Richmond-area economy.

Presented by Keiter, this popular list ranks and recognizes 25 companies with the highest average annual revenue growth in the last three calendar years – in this case, 2016-2018.

As always, it’s free to participate, and the list is open to seasoned and up-and-coming companies of all sizes and in all industries. Applicants have been in business during the entire three-year period and had a minimum of $500,000 in annual revenue in 2018.

Applications and supporting financial documents are confidential and will be handled by Keiter, which will calculate the final rankings.

The top 25 then will be recognized on the RVA 25 list, to be published on BizSense in September. The companies will then be honored at an October evening event celebrating entrepreneurship.

The deadline to complete the application and submit all necessary documentation is Aug. 23. Again, here’s a link to the application.
