Today, Inc. Magazine released its 38th annual Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the US. Industry Dive is proud to be named one of the fastest-growing privately held companies by Inc. for the second year in a row. This year, Industry Dive is honored to be ranked No. 1190.
"The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success," says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. "There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities."
Industry Dive ranked no. 13 among the Top Media companies on the Inc. 5000 and no. 12 among the Top DC companies.
"Over the last year, Industry Dive has seen continued growth - in our teams, talent, and partnerships and from this, our revenue and reach. Every day we continue to get better and take ambitious steps to deliver better journalism, better products, and better experiences for readers and advertisers alike" says Industry Dive CEO Sean Griffey.
About the Inc. 5000 Methodology
The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 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, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
