TENFOLD, founded by Stamps Alumna, Rachel Friedman (BFA 1992) has been recognized for the second year in a row by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing privately owned businesses in the United States.
Inc. Magazine today revealed TENFOLD is No. 1709 with three-year revenue growth of 239 percent 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. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
TENFOLD Founder and CEO Rachel Friedman says, “We are thrilled to receive recognition from Inc. for the second year in a row as one of our country’s fastest-growing private companies. Our vision to reveal and reflect the magic of brand and culture drives us everyday, and this ranking is a validation that we’re going in the right direction. We’re grateful to our incredible partners and clients for helping us in our journey to this point, and beyond.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“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.”
