Inc. magazine released its 2016 list of the 5,000 fastest growing businesses in the U.S., and 25 of them are in Loudoun County.
What’s more, Leesburg-based FedBiz IT Solutions was ranked as the nation’s 10th fastest growing company. FedBiz IT Solutions, located on Harrison Street in downtown Leesburg, is a privately-held, veteran-owned and women-owned business. It’s website states: “Our mission is to offer the ‘Best in Class’ Information Technology and Emerging Technology services and products.”
Local companies that ranked among the top 1,000 fastest growing businesses in the nation were IT services company Cynet Systems (No. 479), business products/services company Wholesale Screening Solutions (No. 480), IT services company NeevSys (#662), and security company PhishMe (No. 700).
Buddy Rizer, Loudoun Economic Development’s executive director, said of 24 Loudoun-based companies making Inc.’s fastest growing businesses, “What’s impressive is that almost half of the Loudoun companies have made the list before, which speaks to their sustained accelerated growth.”
Rizer points to FCi Federal, which has made the list five times.
“Loudoun County has a number of factors that help speed business growth,” Rizer added. “Companies here have access to the most-educated population in America, and the highest concentration of tech workers. They’re close to the biggest customer in the U.S. – the federal government – and can take direct flights to 50 world cities through Dulles International Airport.”
