NEW YORK, August 15, 2018 – Inc. Magazine revealed that Today’s Business is No. 2001 on its 37th Annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the most dynamic segment of America’s economy—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known brands first gained their own national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“I could not be more proud of the #TBTeam for being recognized by Inc. in their list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies! This recognition is a direct result of both our people and our process. Being #2001 on the list is an unbelievable achievement, but this just means our goal is now set at being #1,” said Tom Ottaiano, CEO of Today’s Business.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc.) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
