Local Small Business Honored as One of “50 Companies to Watch in Michigan”
BASIC was recognized as one of the “50 Companies to Watch in Michigan in 2005,” an awards program sponsored by the Edward Lowe Foundation.

“50 Companies to Watch in Michigan is a unique awards program designed to shine the spotlight on second-stage companies,” says Edward Lowe Foundation Executive Director Mark Lange. The Edward Lowe Foundation is a not-for-profit operating foundation based in Michigan. Its mission is to “champion the entrepreneurial spirit” by helping second-stage entrepreneurs learn from each other.

“Startup companies and large corporations often garner attention for their achievements,” says Lange. “But growing second-stage enterprises work mostly behind the scenes, even though they generate the bulk of new, sustainable jobs and are powerful economic forces underpinning the high quality of life most Americans enjoy.”

Companies nominated to be members of the “50 Companies to Watch in Michigan” list must be second-stage companies, defined as employing 7 to 99 full-time-equivalent employees and generating $750,000 to $50 million in gross annual sales. In addition, the companies must be privately held and headquartered in Michigan.

Winners were selected by the Michigan Celebrates Small Business event partners: the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center, the Small Business Association of Michigan, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the U.S. Small Business Administration-Michigan and the Edward Lowe Foundation, based in part on the winners demonstrated intent and capacity to grow based on one or more of the following:

  • Employee or sales growth.
  • Exceptional entrepreneurial leadership.
  • Sustainable competitive advantage.
  • Other notable factors that showcase the company’s success.
