History Associates Makes the Inc. 500|5000 List for Third Straight Year, Fourth Time Overall

For the third straight year, History Associates, the leading U.S. historical research firm, has made Inc. magazine’s annual 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.PR-Inc5000-starburst-300x292

“Making the list in this economy is no small accomplishment,” said Dr. Philip L. Cantelon, CEO and co-founder of History Associates. “I’m proud of our talented staff and our growing list of dedicated clients for making History Associates a success. Who would have thought thirty-three years ago that history could be a viable business niche?”

“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,” said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “…But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

The list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2013.

History Associates also appeared on the Inc. 500 in 1986, when it came in at number 302.
