Delmarva Veteran Builders, the region’s only commercial construction firm dedicated to bringing employment to U.S. Armed Forces Veterans, announced it has been ranked #740 in the Inc. 5000 fastest growing private companies in the United States.
“Making the Inc. 5000 list is an honor and being ranked within the top 1000 is truly energizing and renews my commitment to entrepreneurship,” said Chris Eccleston, Delmarva Veteran Builders. “It takes a team. I congratulate my entire team for their service, dedication and ability to push the boundaries for our clients and our community.”
The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a three-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of the starting calendar year, and therefore able to show three full calendar years of sales.
Companies also must meet the following criteria:
- Privately held
- Independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies
- Revenue in the initial year must have been at least $100,000, and revenue in the most recent year must have been at least $2 million.
About Inc. 5000
In 1982, Inc. introduced the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States. Since then, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success and the place where future household names first make their mark. Pandora, 7 Eleven, Toys ‘R’ Us, Zipcar, Zappos.com and numerous other well-known brands have been honored by the Inc. 5000. In 2007, the Inc. 500 list expanded to the Inc. 5000, giving readers a deeper, richer understanding of the entrepreneurial landscape and capturing a broader spectrum of success.
The Inc. 5000 list is a celebration of innovation, a network of entrepreneurial leaders, and an effective public relations showcase. It ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period. All 5,000 honoree companies are individually profiled on Inc.com. Inc. also ranks the fastest-growing companies by industry, metro area, revenue, and number of employees, and we also highlight women- and minority- run companies.
