Inc. magazine revealed that Thriveon ranked #4288 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.
“It is an honor to be named among the top 5000 fastest-growing companies in America," said Thriveon CEO and founder Sam Bloedow. "For us, growth is the result of our focus on driving tremendous value for our clients and an engaging place to work for our employees."
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) 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.”
The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. Companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015, to qualify. 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. The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million.
