NEW YORK, NY, August 12, 2015 – Inc. magazine today ranked Lynx Technology Partners #80 on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. In addition, Lynx was ranked #1 in Top Security companies, #5 in Top New York State companies, and #6 in New York City Metro Area. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.

“This is well-deserved recognition of the Lynx team’s dedication and work hard work. We are looking forward to another great year of driving quality risk management services and products for our customers,” said Aric K. Perminter, Founder and Chairmen of Lynx Technology Partners, Inc.
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled 2015 Inc 5000 and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Marcus Lemonis, host of the CNBC show “The Profit,” Robert Herjavec, one of the main “sharks” on ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank,” KIND Founder and CEO Daniel Lubetzky, and Co-Founder of Goodshop.com JJ Ramberg.
