Lee County Companies Place on 2018 Inc. 5,000 List

A long list of Southwest Florida companies were highlighted as some of America’s fastest-growing companies, as part of the Inc. 5,000 released by Inc. Magazine.

Five Fort Myers companies made the list, along with two Bonita Springs-based firms. Many of the companies on the list are newer, smaller firms seeing rapid growth, but a few more known quantities also populate the list.

The Inc. 5,000 list only looks at privately-held companies, so those on the stock market don’t count. A total of 338 Florida companies made the list, while Madison, Wisc.-based SwanLeap, a freight management company, led the list with 75,661 percent growth.
