ATLANTA, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- C2 Education, the nation's leading test prep company, announced today that the company was named one of the Top 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the country by Inc. magazine for the 5th time. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent entrepreneurs.
"We are honored to be included on this very important list," said David Kim, Vice Chairman of C2 Education. "When I first started this company out of my Harvard dorm room in 1997, I never dreamed that we would have more than 180 locations across the country and be named to the Inc. 5000 list. It has truly been a team effort here at C2."
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring C2 Education and the other companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, 2016 in San Antonio.
