Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Raincatcher is No. 376 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It’s a great honor to be a part of this prestigious list,” says Raincatcher CEO, Marla DiCarlo. “To have been ranked so highly in a list among business titans is a testament to how we do business here at Raincatcher. The different way we approach the business brokerage industry, which is rooted in value, radical honesty and puts our customers’ interests first, has proven to be a path to success. I look forward to connecting and exchanging ideas amongst other winners in this impressive community in the coming year.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
