Earlier this month, Inc. magazine ranked the Impact Partnership No. 1761 on its 35th Annual Inc. 5000 list with three-year sales growth of 212% and our partners FormulaFolios Investments No. 15 with an impressive three-year sales growth of 9,401%. The Inc. 5000 is 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 American economy’s most dynamic segment: its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com, and the top 500 featured in the September issue of the magazine (available on newsstands now), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Impressively, companies on the list achieved an average three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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.
