Six years and counting. The Agency is proud to celebrate its sixth year in a row ranking among Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America. In 2021, The Agency climbed 66 spots, coming in at number 4,485 with 60% growth in revenue, comparing 2020 to 2017.
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.
Not only have the companies on the 2021 list been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Together, the companies on the list added more than 610,000 employment opportunities 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.”
Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent. View the complete list here.
