Inc. Magazine Unveils its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies for 2020
New Port Richey, Fla, August 12, 2020 – Inc. Magazine today revealed that Learn on Demand Systems is included 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are thrilled to be part of the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row and even more so that we moved up substantially,” said Corey Hynes, CEO of Learn on Demand Systems. “Our team lives and breathes a mission of empowering challenge-centric learning and skills validation. Receiving recognition like this validates that we are on the right path to empower our customers’ success.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for more than 1 million jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” said Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. Magazine. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
