Endeavor Systems, a premier provider of information security systems for federal government agencies, announced today that it was recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the 100 fast growing companies in America. The fourteenth annual “Hot 100” list recognizes entrepreneurial efforts and promotes the positive impact these businesses have on the U.S. economy.
To create this year’s list, researchers filtered an independent database of close 21 million U.S. companies based founding dates, sales figures, and positive employment rates. Only 64,000 businesses—or 0.3 percent of the database—met the stringent criteria. These companies were then sorted based on growth and contacted to confirm eligibility standards, including:
• The founders are actively involved in the business
• The company was not spun-off from a larger organization
• At least $1 million in sales for 2007
Endeavor Systems is ranked 59th overall and fifth among government contractors. Also, it is one of only 24 businesses on this list with a woman co-founder. With only three employees on day one, the company expects to employ over 50 people by the end of 2008 and offers a full range of benefits. Endeavor Systems has turned a profit every year in business and reported over $5.5 million in sales in 2007.
"I am honored that Endeavor Systems was included on this prestigious list,” said Jiemin Li, CEO and Co-Founder. “We contribute our success to our clients, friends, and staff. We have developed trusted relationships, live up to our personnel commitments, and always act on the best interests of our customers."
