Companies on the 2022 Inc. Regional Lists are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $1 million.
As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
