Inc. Magazine Unveils Annual List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000
NEW YORK – Inc. magazine announced today that KPS3 ranks 4,335 on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest growing private companies in the country. The list offers a unique look at the most successful companies in the most dynamic segment of the American economy – their independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armor, Microsoft, Patagonia and many other well-known names received their first national notoriety as the Inc. 5000 award winners.
“I am honored that KPS3 is among so many great brands – brands that have found a way to turn a plethora of negative pressures into opportunities for growth,” said Rob Gaedtke, President & CEO. “This ranking shows once again the strength of the KPS3 team, the diversity of our offers and the ability to be radical in our ideas and always deal responsibly with our business.”
Not only were the 2021 Inc. 5000 companies very competitive in their markets, but this year’s list also proved particularly resilient and flexible given the unprecedented challenges of 2020. Among the 5,000, the median 3-year average growth rate rose to 543 percent and median revenue reached $ 11.1 million. Together, these companies have created more than 610,000 jobs in the past three years.
