DENVER, August 16, 2022 — Inc., one of the most trusted business-media brands, announced today that The Forbes M+A Group ranks 446 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The Inc. 5000 list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.
“On behalf of the Forbes team, we are honored to be included with such a distinguished list of companies,” said Bob Forbes, President of The Forbes M+A Group. “To rank in the top 10 percent is a true testament to the hard work, talent, and expertise of everyone in the firm, as well as to the exceptional companies we have the opportunity to work with on a daily basis. It recognizes how we fiercely advocate on behalf of our clients to create extraordinary results for extraordinary companies.”
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid market fluctuation, supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021. The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million.
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. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
