Inc. Magazine Unveils 37th Annual List ofAmerica’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
The Vested Group is delighted to announce that we have earned a spot on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list. The official Inc. 5000 rankings were recently released, placing The Vested Group at position number 2266. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 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.
The 2018 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2014 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2014. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2017. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000. 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.
“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.”
Joel Patterson, Founder of The Vested Group, states, “our greatest resource at TVG is our team. The people working at TVG are not only great at what they do, they also love their jobs. Happy employees make happy clients and our growth can certainly be traced back to this.” This steady growth has not only paved the way for The Vested Group landing on lists like the Inc. 5000, but TVG has also had the honor of being named one of Inc. Magazines 2018 Best Places to Work as well as being listed on the Dallas Business Journal’s 2018 Best Places to Work list.
