Each year, Inc. 500|5000 honors and celebrates the remarkable achievements of today's entrepreneurial superstars and the privately held small businesses that drive our economy. This list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs—representing a huge honor for SciQuest.
"On behalf of SciQuest, I am thrilled to acknowledge our placement on the Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest-growing companies," said CEO Stephen Weihe. "Making Inc. Magazine's coveted list four years in a row is an honor, and we are equally thrilled to be in great company among other highly regarded and well-known businesses."
