Northern Colorado Business Report's Mercury 100 list was revealed last night at a reception in Fort Collins, Colo. OtterBox, a Fort Collins company that specializes in smartphone cases, was named number one on the list of the fastest-growing private companies in Northern Colorado.
In attendance were privately held companies from every industry in Larimer and Weld County including agribusiness, banking, health care, high technology, manufacturing, real estate, retail and services. List ranking criteria is based on the percentage of revenue growth over the past three years and is divided into two categories: revenue under $2 million and revenue over $2 million. To excel on the list, companies in the region must have experienced the fastest growth within the three-year time period.
