Scrimmage Named To Inc. 5000 List Again
Minneapolis, MN - With its significant three-year revenue growth, Inc. magazine revealed Scrimmage is once again named to 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 - independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure, as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“For the second year in a row, Scrimmage has been honored with this noteworthy Inc. 5000 accolade,” notes Derek Lundsten, Scrimmage CEO. “It is a tribute for our entire team, client roster and partner network to share, enjoy and take pride in your hard work, innovation and persistence to bring the latest in learning technologies to market.”
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 guarantees this kind of spectacular growth. However, what they all definitely have in common is seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, AZ, culminating with the Awards Ceremony & Gala on October 12th. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
