Melville-based 1st Equity Title & Closing Services was one of eight Long Island businesses that were feted last month for making Inc. magazine’s list of fastest growing companies.

1st Equity joined Centerspan Medical, Geekz, Amicus Creative Media, Renegade Furniture Group,Hedgehog Development and Tunnel Hill Partners on the magazine’s Inc. 5,000 list published in its September issue.

Inc. celebrated the companies at its conference in Orlando, Fla. held Oct. 21 through 23.

It’s the third consecutive year that 1st Equity has been included on the Inc. list.

1st Equity founded PinkTie.org, a charitable organization for cancer research, and its CEO Mike Cave feels that its charity work has helped the company grow.

“Being named the number one fastest growing title company in New York State for the third consecutive year certainly solidifies our notion that giving back will help grow your business,” Cave said via email. “Incorporating charitable giving into your business plan not only feels good, but it’s also good for your bottom line.”

The companies on this year’s Inc. list have total revenue of $211 billion and have added 505,000 jobs over the past three years, according to a company statement.
