Inc. magazine today revealed that VSA Prospecting is No. 240 on its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: New York City Metro list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing New York City area-based private companies. VSA achieved a remarkable 39% growth in two-year revenue. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the NYC area economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“When I started VSA in my family room in 2001, my vision was to create a collaborative environment that would be exceptional for our clients, our prospects, and our personnel,” says Valerie Schlitt, VSA CEO and Founder. “While it certainly has its challenges, I find being an entrepreneur incredibly rewarding both professionally and personally.”
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the New York City area. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 214 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 48,000 people and added nearly $9 billion to the NYC Metro area economy. Companies based in Stamford, Connecticut, New York City, and central New Jersey brought in the highest revenue overall.
