Chantilly, VA, September 8, 2016 - OGSystems (OGS), a leader in technology innovation for the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) announced that it has been ranked No. 2122 on the 35th annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. OGSystems shares this pedigree with companies such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, GoPro, Oracle and other notable alumni.
“It is an honor to be included among the fastest growing private companies for the 5th consecutive year,” said Omar Balkissoon, CEO and Co-Founder of OGSystems. “We are driven by a passion to support our customer's mission with speed and efficiency. It is with this passion that we continue to grow incrementally year after year.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23)is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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
'The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts', said Inc. President and Editor-inChief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
