The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com is the most competitive list that ranks America’s top 5000 fastest growing private companies. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
Here are a few testimonials from the companies that bagged a spot on the prestigious list:
“We are honored to be recognized again on the prestigious Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies,” said Chris Sullens, president and CEO of WorkWave. “I am very proud of my team and what we have accomplished together. We continue to focus on providing cutting-edge solutions that solve operational and growth challenges for our clients.

“We are proud to be recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fasted-growing companies in America. Our performance is a testament to our unique mix of great agents, robust management, and our revolutionary Beacon platform,” says LG Fairmont CEO Aaron Graf. “Our success continues to fuel our growth. In 2017 thus far, we’ve made significant enhancements to our Beacon technology, which programmatically handles lead distribution, client relationship management and operations automation. We’ve also substantially scaled our agent base, quadrupling the size of the team that generated our 2016 revenue, so we are very optimistic for the future.”
