The 4th annual list recognizes 215 private companies putting purpose ahead of profit.

Boston, December 5, 2023 – Caldwell has been named to the Inc. 2023 Best in Business list in the business services category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society. The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 12), recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole. 

Eric Hagerman, Special Projects Editor at Inc., says, “Being named to the Best in Business list is a rare and special honor. These honorees demonstrate the foresight, caring, and dedication to prioritize positive impact—impact on their community, on their industry and the environment, and even on society as a whole.” 

“Service is at the heart of our firm. Our firm’s culture and ethos are based on helping others and remaining grateful. Through public service, we have cultivated a sense of gratitude and purpose that enriches our firm culture,” said Keegan Caldwell, Global Managing Partner. “Our Caldwell Cares program helps current and aspiring entrepreneurs succeed in life, especially those in underserved communities. We are honored that Inc. has recognized our commitment to helping those who need help the most.”

Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 70 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 215 honored in the list’s fourth year. Honorees for general excellence across various industries and categories are featured online at
