“Greater Philadelphia’s economy is increasingly diverse and dynamic,” said Philadelphia Business Journal Publisher Sandy Smith. “We consider it a crucial part of our mission to identify and recognize the companies driving our region’s growth.”

The Philadelphia Business Journal crunched the revenue numbers from all public companies who qualified and were headquartered in Greater Philadelphia using Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

“We've had a busy and productive couple of years. We closed two acquisitions in the last 12 months, and look forward to closing our third, of Lovoo, in October,” said Geoff Cook, CEO of The Meet Group. “We have also executed on an aggressive product pipeline, launching Live video on our MeetMe, Skout, and Tagged apps. We’re honored to be included on the Soaring 76, and we’re looking forward to continued growth in 2017 and beyond.”

All 76 companies who made the list will find out their ranking at a special event held at the SugarHouse Casino on Sept. 28, 2017. The Meet Group will also be recognized in a feature report in the Sept. 29, 2017, weekly edition of the Philadelphia Business Journal.
