A-List: 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned Businesses

When Sarah Kauss came up with the idea for a high-end water bottle company, she anticipated starting a small, niche business and eventually, reverting back to a more traditional job once the new venture was off the ground.

Little did she know that company, S’well, would become the fastest-growing women-owened business in the U.S., according to an annual ranking by the Women President’s Organization (WPO).

The list ranks companies based on both percentage and absolute growth. S’well joins 50 other companies which together generated $4.96 billion in revenues just last year.

The list, which is in its ninth year, ranks companies based on both percentage and absolute growth. To qualify for the ranking, businesses must be privately-held, woman-owned/led, and have reached revenue of at least $500,000 by the first week of 2011 and $2 million in 2015. Together, the 50 companies on the list generated a combined $4.96 billion in revenues last year. We’ve included the complete list below:
