25 DC-area companies make the 500 cut on Inc. 5,000 list

Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies includes 25 D.C. area companies in the top 500, down from 27 last year.

Inc.’s list is based on three-year revenue growth between 2018 and 2021. Companies must be privately held, based in the U.S. and not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. They must also have had a minimum of $2 million in revenue in 2021.



Highest ranked locally is Ashburn, Virginia-based government services company RP Professional Services, with three-year revenue growth of 5,300%, at No. 74 on the list.

Alexandria-based business products and services company Integrated Management Strategies ranks No. 76, with three-year revenue growth of 5,271%.

At No. 105 is Bonnie and Pop, a Fairfax-based company that makes gourmet nut, chocolate, cracker and cheese gift boxes, with three-year revenue growth of 4,141%.

Inc. Magazine has been compiling its list every year since 1982.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief. “Inc is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work and rising to the challenges of today.”
