In early December, Arlington Economic Development honored the winners of its fastest growing companies competition — known as the Arlington Fast Four. The winners were formally announced and recognized at a small reception at Ballston Local. County Board Chair Matt de Ferranti presented the award to the four winning companies.
Award nominees were privately held companies that showcased sound revenue growth from 2018-2020. Applicants were required to provide income statements to show proof of growth and revenue. The competition recognized the leading companies within four levels of revenue, spanning from $500,000 to $25 million and above per year.
Congratulations to the 2021 Fast Four winners:

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
