The Inc. 500|5000 ranks the nation’s fastest growing private companies, with the 2012 rankings representing percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. As cited in many press releases today, the ‘Inc. list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—entrepreneurs.’ We agree!

Inc. Magazine noted that the 2012 list is the most competitive in its history—in order to make the Inc. 500, companies had to achieve a minimum of 770 percent growth in sales. For companies listed on the Inc. 500, aggregate revenue totaled $15.7 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,431 percent. The companies on this year’s Inc. 500 employ more than 48,000 people and created over 40,000 jobs in the past three years.
