Each year, Inc. releases a list of small, privately owned businesses with the most success within their fields, something that’s considered a great achievement in the business world.
Introduced in 1982, the Inc. 5000 started off as a list of 500, growing exponentially in 2007. The list serves to show the success of small businesses, giving them a head start in the entrepreneurial world.
Companies must meet various requirements to be named on the list: According to Inc., to qualify for the 2020 list companies must have generated revenue by March 2016, made at least $100,000 by 2018, and at least $2 million in 2019.
In addition to the main list, Inc. has separate lists that honor companies lead by women and minorities. One of the women-owned companies, Macan Deve Engineers states, “As a New York certified Women-Owned Business in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industry, we are very proud of this achievement and grateful for everyone who has supported us from the beginning.”
Scroll down for a full list of Westchester County honorees — including several Best of Business and Small Business Award winners! — in each category, along with what a few of them had to say about being included.

“The entire agency at Copy & Art is extremely proud to have been named on the Inc 5000 list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in the US (in addition to a 914Inc Best of Business award the same week). When deciding where we wanted to call home, we knew Westchester was the place to be. The county needed NYC caliber agency services without the NYC location. Our simple offering of big agency experience and small agency love has paid off — and the best part for us and clients: we’re just getting started.”

We’ve all had substantial careers and made a conscious choice to make our collective Act II something special. In short, we’re good people, doing good work for good people. So, our amazing growth is directly related to the company we keep, inside and out. We’re absolutely thrilled to make the Inc. 5000 list.”
