“We are thrilled to join this elite roster of companies and entrepreneurs; Perseus could not have arrived at this level without the strongest team work and dedication of our loyal customers,” says Dr Jock Percy, Chief Executive of Perseus. “As a global company serving multiple sectors, this award endorses who we are and has already opened up new doors for funding, acquisitions and new avenues of innovation. Thank you to my team, our customers and our partners.”
“At a time when growth in the United States and Europe has largely stalled, the INC.500 companies are surging. Our annual ranking of America's fastest-growing private companies proves that even without tailwinds from the overall economy, some companies can achieve impressive acceleration. This year, the 500 racked up a median growth rate of 1,828 percent--up from 1,739 percent last year. Collectively, these companies have created just over 46,000 jobs.” INC Magazine September 2014
