2021 Fast 50 List Honors Forward Financing

March 30, 2021 | Company News

March 30, 2021 — The Boston Business Journal has named Forward Financing to its exclusive 2021 Fast 50 list, which represents the 50 fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts. This is the fifth consecutive year that Forward Financing has been named on the Fast 50 list. 


“Thank you to the Boston Business Journal for this incredible honor. We are thrilled to be named on the Fast 50 list for the fifth consecutive year! I’m proud of our team’s unwavering dedication to helping our small business customers reach their full potential.”


The 2021 Fast 50 companies are selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. Companies on the Fast 50 must be based in Massachusetts and report revenue of at least $500,000 in 2017 and $1 million in 2020. The Business Journal’s research department collected and analyzed the data.


“The economic shutdown sent a lot of companies’ strategies and financials into uncharted territory in 2020, but as the 2021 Fast 50 illustrates, Greater Boston’s fastest-growth companies pivoted and prospered despite it all,” Carolyn M. Jones, market president and publisher of the Boston Business Journal.
