The companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 have not only 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 average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says 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.”


In 2017 more than $500 million in media spend was measured by NinthDecimal across TV, out-of-home, mobile, and other media formats. NinthDecimal’s Data businesses also experienced a high-level of demand as more than 900 brands relied on its audiences and NinthDecimal’s activation network of more than 200 partners including leading DSPs, DMPs, social platforms, and TV buying platforms.
