The Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the US came out this morning, and we made the list for the 5th straight year! This year we moved up to #3368, the highest we’ve been on the list.
There are a lot of faster growing companies out there, but I think what’s most impressive about what we’ve done is that we’ve done it for five straight years. According to the letter we received from Inc., this is quite rare:
Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere four percent of companies have made the list 5 times.
And that 4% is five times ever, not five times consecutively! Which, if you think about it, is really hard, because it’s based upon 3-year growth and the bottom number was still good enough to be on the list for the second straight year.
Anyway, today just happens to be a day where our entire team is in the warehouse and we’re having a team lunch, so it’s a great time for us all to take a moment to step back and enjoy the accomplishment.
