Advocacy & Communication Solutions, LLC (ACS), was named a Weatherhead 100 Upstart winner as one of the fastest-growing companies in Northeast Ohio. ACS is an all-female, minority-owned firm that has provided communication, advocacy, and strategy development services to early childhood education, K-12 education, Medicaid, health and human services, and workforce development organizations across the country for nearly 12 years.
ACS was awarded the number 16 spot in the “Upstart” category at a ceremony on December 3rd. Sponsored by the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio, the Weatherhead 100 awards ceremony recognizes Northeast Ohio’s fastest-growing companies based on revenue from the past five years. Upstarts are fast-growing companies with fewer than 15 employees and net sales of less than $5 million last year. In the past five years, ACS has increased its staff from two to six employees and has grown revenues from $600,000 to nearly $1 million a year.
