When something good happens once, you might think it’s a fluke. When it happens twice, it might be a coincidence.
But six times? That’s a pattern of continued success.
Typically, we like to use our blog to highlight our client successes and strategies. But today, we’re thrilled to share a little success of our own! List Partners (Winmo’s parent company) has been named No. 3,525 on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S.
As we mentioned, this isn’t our first rodeo. Last year, our fifth list appearance, we ranked No. 3,149. We also made the cut in 2016, 2011, 2010, and 2009. Over the years, the Inc. 5000 list has included companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, and Zappos.com — talk about good company!
For the uninitiated, the Inc. 5000 is an annual list of the fastest growing private companies. Presented by Inc. Magazine, the list tracks companies based on the previous three years of revenue growth. To qualify for the list, companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. Revenue in the first year of tracking must have been at least $100,000, while revenue in the most recent year of tracking must be at least $2 million.
For some perspective, consider this: in 2016 (the most recent data available), the U.S. had 7,757,807 employers (privately-held companies that actually employ people), and 27,626,360 firms (total privately-held companies, including incorporated entities that don’t actually employ people, but likely serve as an investment vehicle). That’s a lot of corporate jargon, but when you break it down with a little simple division, it means that List Partners is in the top 0.045% of the fastest-growing businesses in the U.S.
We’re proud of this accomplishment, but we’re also acutely aware of how we’d be nothing without you, our valued clients. We’ve had a HUGE 2018 thus far (hello, Redbooks, Access Confidential, and AAR Partners acquisitions, new integrations with Crystal Knows, Hookit, and more!), but we’re not looking to slow down anytime soon.
Next up: more incredible integrations, more award-winning sales intelligence, and more incredible client service. Basically, more good stuff!
