Working for a growing company can be a lot of fun, so if you’re looking for some up-and-coming Charlotte businesses, take a peek at the 2016 Inc. 5000 list.

The annual compilation ranks private companies by percentage of revenue growth over a three-year period (with 2015 the latest revenue year). This year, 43 Charlotte area companies made the cut.

A few things to keep in mind

This is a great list to start with, but remember that since Inc. requires companies to disclose specific revenue numbers, not all businesses want to participate. (That whole pesky competition thing.) Another great resource is the Charlotte Business Journal’s annual Fast 50, which also ranks companies by percentage of revenue growth but doesn’t publish actual revenue figures.

Remember that smaller private companies have an easier time posting eye-popping numbers as well. To qualify, companies had to post a minimum $2 million in revenue for 2015.

It’s pretty darn impressive that big Charlotte companies with hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue like XOOM Energy, Movement Mortgage and AmWINS Group are represented. Who said insurance is boring?
