PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) October 23, 2015
Swift Capital, a leading provider of working capital for small businesses, was recognized last week as the fifth fastest growing company in the Philadelphia region by the Philadelphia 100, increasing their sales percentage over the past three years by 518.9%. This is the second consecutive year that Swift Capital is being recognized among the Philadelphia 100.
“Swift Capital is excited to be named one of the fastest growing companies in the Philadelphia region for the second year in a row,” said Ed Harycki, Chief Executive Officer at Swift Capital. “Our recognition by the Philadelphia 100 is a testament to our employees, who strive to provide expedient access to the funding that keeps America’s small business moving forward. We look forward to continued growth and success in fulfilling this mission.”
Swift Capital launched in 2011 with the simple idea that small business owners should be able to access business funding based on the strength of their business, not just their personal finances. Whereas bank lending looks the same as it did decades ago, Swift Capital is constantly looking for innovative ways to apply data and technology so small businesses can enjoy a faster, simpler lending process.
The Philadelphia 100 has been the hallmark of entrepreneurial achievement in the region since 1988, when a group of entrepreneurial supporters and professional service providers gathered at the Entrepreneur’s Forum of Greater Philadelphia to brainstorm a way to highlight the contribution of entrepreneurial companies in the region. Today, the project, which is run by the Wharton Small Business Development Center, The Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Business Journal, identifies and honors the 100 fastest growing, privately held entrepreneurial companies in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
The Philadelphia 100 identifies and honors the region’s top 100 fastest growing companies based on percentage increase in sales from the prior three years of business. To qualify for the Philadelphia 100, applicants must be independent, privately held corporations, proprietorships or partnerships with three full years of sales history and a sales increase from 2012 to 2014.
