It’s official; we’re ecstatic to announce we’ve made the cut and have been included on the 2016 Inc. 5000 List of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in America!

The 2016 list marks the 35th annual authoritative ranking by Inc. Media, that highlights entrepreneurs, the “superheroes of the U.S. economy”, and their appetite for growth. Applicants were selected for the designation and ranked based on their percentage of revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015.

“We’re thrilled to be included on this list. We’re in great company and the honor emphasizes our passion for continual growth, dedication to our clients, and commitment to results,” said Alan De Keyrel, Chief Happiness Officer and Founder of CWS. 

By the Numbers

CWS is the only company headquartered in Rochester to be included on the list, and we proudly join 93 other Minnesota-based companies such as Surly Brewing, Snap Fitness, and Mainstream Boutique.

According to Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief, Eric Schurenberg, “... the 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history…”. The average company on the list achieved a three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, generating 640,000 jobs over the past three years.
