We know you’re out there.

The Business Journal is producing its annual list of fastest-growing privately held companies, set to appear as the centerpiece of a Special Report in its Sept. 22 issue.

We are seeking private companies that have seen their yearly sales grow rapidly from mid-2012 to mid-2014.

Is your company growing fast? Then let us know.

We’re looking for Orange County-based companies owned by an individual, a group of people, families, venture capitalists, private equity firms or other investors.

Publicly traded companies and subsidiaries won’t be considered. Nor will locally owned offices of national services firms.

We’re ranking companies by revenue growth from June 2012 through June 2014.

Companies must have minimum sales of $300,000 for the 12 months through June 2012.

We urge you to submit your company for consideration.

What’s in it for you?

Bragging rights, for one. Your company could be ranked one of the fastest-growing companies in an area known for nimble startups and entrepreneurialism.

It’s also good exposure for your company before customers, bankers, vendors, peers or even potential investors.

The Business Journal has an online form for companies to fill out for consideration at goo.gl/heXPPN.
