It's a great honor to be recognized for earning a spot on the 2019 Inc. 500 list, said Chi Yau, co-founder of Tricopian, Inc. This recognition is a testament to the many benefits that our FuelRod mobile device charging service offers users at airports, theme parks, convention centers and other high-traffic venues who need to keep their smartphones and tablets charged on the go. The success of our FuelRod mobile charging service couldn't be achieved without all the hard work and dedication of our staff and our loyal customers.

The companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success, says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. There's no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.
The annual Inc. 5000/500 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
