About the Philadelphia 100

The Philadelphia 100 is a merit-based program which recognizes the region’s fastest growing, privately held companies.  Since 1988, making the annual “Philly 100” has become a hallmark of entrepreneurial achievement.   The integrity of the process and the resulting list make it one of the most sought awards in the region.

Rankings in the 2012 Philadelphia 100 were based on the three-year revenue growth rate from 2009 to 2011.  Researchers at the Wharton Small Business Development Center used this information to rank the top 100 fastest growing companies, based on their percentage increase in sales during the three-year period.
