All of us here at SyCom Technologies are excited to be named to the Inc. 5000 in 2014. This is the third consecutive year that our company has been recognized in the private company growth rankings from Inc. and we would like to thank our Mid-Atlantic customers for supporting SyCom with their efforts. The revenue growth we have recognized during this time has been a direct result of partnering with our customer base, IT manufacturers and hard work from the SyCom team. Data Center, Collaboration, Security, Managed Services and Cloud were key technology market drivers over the past year and we look forward to continuing our growth into 2015.
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%.

“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
