About the NC100

Since 1984, the NC100 has celebrated North Carolina’s top privately held companies. These include everything from family-owned businesses to large corporations.

“We created the NC100 program 33 years ago to highlight the unbelievable talent and innovation happening with North Carolina companies,” said Dave Wedding, Charlotte-based managing partner for the Southeast region at Grant Thornton LLP.

“We’ve seen tremendous growth and change in our state since then, and the companies on this list are often the initiators of that progress, something we want and need to celebrate.”

How honorees are selected

Grant Thornton LLP compiles the annual NC100 list. They partner with Business North Carolina magazine, which publishes the list in the magazine’s October edition.

Companies apply to the list voluntarily, and are selected and ranked based on their revenue from the previous fiscal year.

To be considered, companies must be headquartered in North Carolina and not have publicly traded stock. However, companies owned by private equity are permitted. Corporate subsidiaries, nonprofits, financial services companies, and health care providers such as hospitals are not eligible.
