We're certainly proud of all the growth awards we've been honored with recently, but we're extra excited to announce that we've just been named to the Deloitte Fast 500 list of the fastest-growing companies in North America. This list has criteria that is near and dear to our heart, because inclusion on this list requires the majority of company revenue to come from propietary technology developed and owned by the company - that's what we do!
We're one of a handful of South Carolina companies to win this award since 1999, and only the second company in the Upstate region. More than 2/3 of the companies on this year's list are backed by venture capital, while our debt-free growth has been bootstrapped.
We're thankful for our amazing employees, customers, and partners who all help us continue to grow as a company!
Here's the press release:
