The Puget Sound Business Journal has released the first look at its annual 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies list.
The past two and a half years have been anything but business as usual. The pandemic introduced new realities that upended entire industries and fueled others.
The Puget Sound Business Journal’s 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies provides a unique snapshot of what businesses in the state thrived during the pandemic.
The companies on this year’s list grew revenue by 153% on average between 2019 and 2021. A few even experienced revenue increases of more than 1,000%, and at first glance, it’s easy to see why these grew.
Companies in the logistics and supply chain sectors earned more than $2.3 billion in 2021 revenue, a 144% increase from 2019 revenue.
Moreover, the growth continues to touch different areas of the state. Seattle is still the city on top, but its share of companies on our Fastest-Growing Private Companies List decreased for the fifth year in a row. A quarter of the companies have headquarters in Bellevue. Renton, Snohomish and Vancouver each have three companies on the list.
