About The Awards

Fast Track 50 applicants are judged based on financial and growth information. Dating back to the initial awards 25 years ago, applicants are ranked and selected based on 80% growth in sales and 20% growth in employment over a historical 5 year trend.  Winners for 2017 are evaluated based on sales and employment data over 2012-2016 operating years, with all information requiring confirmation from each companies’ business accountants. Companies must be located in Lake or Geauga Counties and must have a 2012 profit minimum of $250,000. Fast Track 50 is also split into two categories, Established Businesses and Emerging Businesses. This provides a means for smaller scale companies to compete!

In 2017, the minimum revenue for the Established business category is $2.75 Million. The Emerging Business Category requires $250,000.
