Fastest Growing Companies Awards
The Fastest Growing Companies program identifies the region’s most dynamic companies that have made significant contributions to the strength of our local economy. Nominated companies will be ranked according to revenue growth over a three-year period, with both dollar and percentage increases taken into consideration. This ranking formula will lead to the recognition of both large and small companies.

How can I be considered for a Forty Under 40 award?
Nominations can be made by anyone, including yourself. An application is automatically emailed to all nominees and must be completed in order to be considered for this award. A letter of recommendation is not required, but is strongly encouraged to assist the judges in making their decision.
To be eligible, applicants must live in or work in either Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, lower Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, upper Bucks, or Schuylkill County.
How often can I be considered?
Forty Under 40 winners can only win one time. Second year nominations and applications will not be considered.
Who are the judges and what are they looking for when selecting the Forty Under 40 winners?
Winners are selected by an outside panel of judges that includes previous winners. Judges look at an individual’s professional accomplishments, community service and commitment to inspiring change. It is helpful to have at least one letter of recommendation from someone that can speak to all three of these achievements.
Where do I have to live to qualify for this award?
You must live or work in one of the following counties: Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, lower Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, upper Bucks, Schuylkill or Warren.
Should I have a letter of recommendation sent?
Past judges have told us that the letter(s) of recommendation is helpful particularly when they are not familiar with the candidate. Up to 3 letters of recommendations can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please save all letters of recommendation as PDFs labeled with your name (or organization) led by the category or event you are being nominated for. The letter will be paired to your application when it is received.
Do the winners have to say something?
Winners do not speak live during the event, but will be contacted to be profiled in a multi-media video that will be aired during the event.
I’m a Forty Under 40 award winner, what now?

If I’m a winner, do I need to purchase a ticket?

Can I buy an ad in the publication?
The Forty Under 40 program is supported through sponsorships. The ads you see in the magazine are part of the sponsorship packages. Please email email@example.com.
I purchased a ticket but have not received it?
