Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
DULUTH, September 7th, 2021 – Inc. magazine revealed that VoiceNation is No. 4585 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. As their second time making the list, VoiceNation is proud to share their rise in rank as well.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Eric Schurke, CEO of VoiceNation, shared, “Looking back at VoiceNation’s 19-year history and all of our accomplishments, I think this one might top them all. In the most challenging year, we’ve ever seen due to the pandemic, our team managed to beat all the odds and see massive growth and make the Inc 5000 for the 2nd year in a row. I couldn’t be more proud and excited for our team and what they accomplished.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
The complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which became available on newsstands on August 20th, 2021.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
