Minneapolis, MN – Inc. Magazine announces that Scrimmage has made its 37th Annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and a hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment of independent 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.
“We are honored to have Scrimmage be recognized and included on the Inc. 5000 list,” said Derek Lundsten, Chief Executive Officer. “It is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, as well as our clients and partners who drive our success everyday. We look forward to being on the list in the years to come, but this first one is truly special.”
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 median growth rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1B in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it means unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” said Inc. Editor-In-Chief, James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17th-19th, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation. Joel McHale is set to host the Awards Ceremony and Gala Event on Friday evening, where the honorees will be celebrated.
