ZG Companies announced today that the company has made the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Ranking No. 952 on the list with a 520 percent three-year revenue growth puts ZG Companies in the top 20 percent of list makers as a first-year recipient of the award.
The Inc. 5000 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 were previously on the list.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list, as a whole, shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
Inc. 5000 eligibility requirements include being a privately owned, U.S.-based company and providing detailed financial information to determine growth rate in the specified time period. Companies are then ranked based on that revenue growth.
