Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Within the first hour of our background search, we have identified 3 rapidly growing companies that are less than 10 years old and are worth at least a billion dollars. Since several companies meet these criteria, we recommend further research to provide an additional 16-20 profitable, billion-dollar companies that are less than 10 years old. For each company identified, we would provide the name of the company, a brief description of what it does, its current value, reasons behind its growth, and profit generated in 2018 or 2019. If profits are not publicly declared, we may provide the most recent revenue as an alternative.
