After years of economic groveling, the economy is finally making its slow and steady swing back into safety.

It just so happens many of the fastest-growing companies are based right out of Illinois, making Chicagoans likely to be the first to jump into the economic opportunity.

The business magazine Inc. recently released its 2017 list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the U.S., where more than two dozen Illinois companies found a place.

Inc.’s methodology for compelling the list is based on the fastest-growing firms, defining them as creators – creators of jobs, ideas and income for the state of Illinois.

According to the report, named companies already experienced significant growth and are projected to continue expanding, providing for the economy in big ways:

“They create companies, they create value, and they create jobs ? 619,631 of them over the last three years. You’ll also discover the newest hot spots, the coolest products, and the people who make it all happen.”

Some of the organizations listed are still in their infancy, such as the top Illinois company with significant growth, topping 12,000 percent while only in its fourth year of business.

With this in mind, Chicagoans may see an increase in job availability as the year rolls on and these companies continue to thrive.
