The firm ranked No. 2725 with three-year growth of 197%

HOUSTON – Aug. 16, 2023 – Velentium, a professional engineering firm that specializes in the design and manufacturing of therapeutic and diagnostic active medical devices, announced today it was once again recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America. Inc. ranked Velentium No. 2725 on the 2023 Inc. 5000. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent, entrepreneurial businesses.

Velentium increased its ranking from 2022 and positioned itself No. 263 in Texas and No. 52 both in manufacturing and in the greater Houston area.

“We are thrilled to secure our spot on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies for the fourth consecutive year,” said Velentium CEO Dan Purvis. “We lead an intensely culture-forward organization that talented people want to work for and clients want to partner with. We make promises we keep, put client success ahead of our own, protect our people, and keep operations human. When our staff, partners, clients, and executives can be fully human in our work, then loyalty, referrals, and growth follow. Velentium’s success and recognition on this list is a side effect of our passion to change lives for a better world.”

The Inc. 5000 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238%. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,186,000 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

For complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, location and other criteria, go to The top 500 companies are featured in the September issues of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, Aug. 23.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” said Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000 – with the fast growth that it requires – is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

Over the 11 years since its launch, Velentium has grown exponentially, showcasing its mission to help change lives for a better world. In late 2021, Velentium announced a growth recapitalization in partnership with Connecticut-based Great Point Partners (GPP), a leading healthcare investment firm. Since then, GPP’s investment has allowed Velentium to scale operations and fuel emerging opportunities as part of its global expansion and mission to help its clients develop and deliver life-changing technologies to the world.

One of Velentium’s primary areas of investment is growing the capabilities and footprint of its onshore medical device manufacturing facility in Katy, Texas. The company has signed a lease on a larger built-to-suit corporate facility, where its manufacturing and R&D teams will be co-located in early 2024. Velentium offers full implantable, lead, and wearable manufacturing available in addition to its industry-leading design and development services.

Striving to educate the next generation of engineers, Velentium also announced the launch of three online cybersecurity courses designed for medical device developers and executives. These trainings address many of the ever-changing elements impacting the medical device industry including new FDA and regulatory guidance, secure product lifecycle management, device security and design, vulnerability assessments, secure development and manufacturing, cybersecurity testing and documentation, and postmarket surveillance. The new courses from Velentium are based on the bestselling engineering textbook Medical Device Cybersecurity for Engineers and Manufacturers and are taught by one of its principal authors, Christopher Gates.
