Some special reports are just more special than others. Our annual look at the 100 fastest growing private companies in Los Angeles unquestionably meets that lofty standard.

For 23 years, the Los Angeles Business Journal has proudly highlighted local companies that have not only built exceptional businesses but have parlayed their success into exponential growth.

This year’s top 100 features another remarkable assortment of companies, and it’s the kind of list that highlights the best L.A. has to offer: the innovation, the ingenuity, the diversity and, of course, the results.

Some of the numbers posted this year are positively eye-popping, including the 18,000% growth by this year’s top-ranked company, Caulipower. By the way, that’s the second-largest number ever posted on the Business Journal’s list.

In order to be considered for the fastest growing top 100 list, a company must have a minimum of $5 million in annual revenue, be in business for at least three years and be headquartered in the Los Angeles area. Percentage growth is based on a three-year average from 2016 to 2018.

Our team of editors looked at hundreds of businesses before narrowing down the list and determining the final ranking. By the way, because companies are ranked by percentage growth, there are a handful of ties.

Congratulations to every company that made the list this year.
