Crain's Fast 50: New York's Fastest Growing Companies

By: Crain's New York Business

To arrive at our annual ranking of the fastest growing New York businesses, we looked at companies with $10 million or more in revenue and measured their three-year annualized growth rate. We partnered with the accounting firm Anchin Block & Anchin to verify the financial documents submitted by companies. This year's results show how advertising tech firms are fueling the economy.

Two of Crain’s 50 fastest growing companies are 4 WTC tenants: Media Math (13) and Syntactex (12).
