Meet the 2015 Class of the Fast 100, the San Francisco Business Times’ annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the Bay Area.
Collectively, the 100 companies that made the List exhibited an impressive median revenue growth rate of 123 percent over the past three years. During that time, the companies collectively added 5,100 jobs.
The Fast 100 ranks companies on percent growth in revenue from fiscal years 2012 to 2014.
This year’s winners come from nearly every industry and include food companies, fin-tech firms, software developers, 3D printers and general contractors.
To qualify for the 2015 List, companies had to meet the following criteria:
- Independent, privately held corporation, proprietorship, or partnership (not a subsidiary or division) through fiscal year-end 2014. Companies that went public or were acquired after the completion of fiscal year 2014 were eligible.
- Headquartered in the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo or Marin; or the city of Palo Alto.
- A three-year sales history (fiscal years 2012, 2013, 2014). Applications were accepted for fiscal years ending through March 31, 2015, which, for our purposes, qualifies as fiscal year 2014.
- The company must have been in business throughout fiscal year 2012 with net revenue (revenue less deductions for returns) of more than $200,000 in that year.
