For the 3rd Time, First Line Technology Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 2100 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 212 Percent
NEW YORK, August 15, 2018 – Inc. magazine today revealed that First Line Technology is No. 2100 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Normally, high growth rates are achieved by companies in their early years. We’re very proud that First Line Technology has been able to achieve a growth rate of over three years in its fifteenth year in business. Our continuing high growth rates can be attributed to our success in taking innovative discoveries from the labs and developing them into life-saving solutions for responders and the military.”
Amit Kapoor, President and CEO, First Line Technology

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
