2020 might have been completely out of the ordinary in some respects, but that hasn’t stopped many companies from finding ways to continue serving the needs of their customers. Each year, a group sponsors this ongoing competition among the state’s fastest-growing businesses.
The primary sponsors include The Capital Corporation, Integrated Media Publishing, and KeenanSuggs|HUB Insurance. Anyone can nominate a company, but the criteria for winners include that they be headquartered in South Carolina, have been in operation for at least three full fiscal years, and have reported revenues of $3 million or more in the most recent year.
Judging South Carolina’s Top Businesses
The organization begins taking nominations for these honors in the third quarter of the year. The public can fill out a form to nominate their favorite business on www.scbusinessawards.com.
The top businesses for the fastest-growing companies awards are selected using a calculation based on the employee headcount over three years, and the year-over-year revenue growth. An award is also given for a “Rising Star,” denoting a company as one to watch in the state in the coming years.
