About the Inc. 5000 List
The Inc. 5000 List is the nation’s most prestigious ranking of private companies. Inc. Magazine creates the list based on revenue growth over a three-year period and has labeled the 2016 companies as the “superheroes of the U.S. economy…wield[ing] powers like strategy, service and innovation.”

The 5,000 companies achieved an average growth rate of 433% and collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the three-year period. As stated by the magazine’s President and Editor in Chief, Eric Schurenberg, “We honor just one thing: real achievement … No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great–usually from scratch.”
