Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Inc. magazine today revealed that OJO Labs is No. 49 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.
“Over the last year, OJO Labs has seen rapid growth, earmarked by a $62.5 million funding round, two acquisitions, the launch of our agent referral network, and expansion into Canada,” said John Berkowitz, Founder and CEO of OJO Labs. “We know homeownership isn’t within reach for everyone and stark inequity still exists along racial and class lines today, but OJO Labs envisions a world where everyone gets to experience the physical, financial, and emotional haven that home provides. Our phenomenal growth in the past year has fueled meaningful progress in our pursuit of closing the homeownership gap and bringing impactful change in the real estate industry. OJO Labs is thrilled to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 for the first time at #49 alongside other innovative, rapidly growing brands.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 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 top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
