Pallas Partners, a Louisville based strategic advisory firm , was included in the list of companies recognized as part of the inaugural Flyover 50, an effort by Five Elms Capital to recognize the 50 fastest-growing companies in the middle of the country.
"We created the Flyover 50 to highlight great companies in the middle of the country for potential employees and customers," Fred Coulson, the managing partner of Five Elms Capital, said in a press release. "Flyover 50 honorees are proof that there are plenty of reasons to land in the central U.S."
Companies had to apply or be nominated to be considered for the Flyover 50, which was determined based on percentage of revenue growth. To qualify for consideration, companies had to be based in a 20-state area in the middle of the country and have revenue of greater than $1 million in 2011. All revenue and growth figures used in Flyover 50 applications were kept confidential.
The Flyover 50 was created by Five Elms Capital as a way to highlight hardworking entrepreneurs who are shaping the next generation of the communities they work in. Eligible companies were based in Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
