They say third time’s a charm, but when you always have your head in the game, who needs charm? Today we’re proud to announce that ShipMonk has made the 2023 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the FIFTH year in a row!
The annual Inc. 5000 list represents a one-of-a-kind look at America’s most successful, fast-growing private companies within the economy’s most dynamic segments. Many entrepreneurs and incomparable global brands gained their initial national exposure through Inc. 5000, such as Jenny Craig, Mark Cuban, Bill Gates, Chobani, Under Armour, Patagonia, and so many more. We could post a blog a day for weeks and not even scratch the surface of these movers and shakers.
As noted by Inc. Media editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk, “Being on the Inc. 5000 means you’re among the top 0.07% of companies in the country in terms of growth.”
The Selection Process
As business mogul and renowned investor Kevin O’Leary notes, the annual Inc. 5000 list “starts with around 7 million companies that distills down to about 5000.”
So how does Inc. Media decide those top tier businesses? To start with, companies under consideration must be based in the U.S., privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies as of December 31, 2021. The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million.
Getting into more specifics, companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places. Past that, the vision, persistence, and innovative spirit of leaders and companies are also taken into account.
“It takes special skill, serious determination, and smart operating to reach this milestone,” says Scott Omelianuk.
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain problems, labor shortages, and other fallout from Covid-19.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
ShipMonk CEO Jan Bednar and the entire ShipMonk team are proud to join this prestigious list alongside many exceptional entrepreneurs and companies across the country.
