Milwaukee, WI, August 15, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Inc. magazine today ranked Approyo NO. 895 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. It’s Approyo’s third straight year on the list, driven by several years of strong revenue growth. Only 20% of all companies on the list have been honored 3 or more times.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It is such a great honor to continue experiencing the kind of growth necessary to be on the Inc. 5000 list for three years in a row,” said Christopher Carter, CEO of Approyo. “Thank you to all our staff and great partners and customers. 2018 continues to be a fantastic year as we grow our staff and footprint in the SAP ecosystem. We look forward to this kind of sustained growth and prosperity for years to come as we continue our commitment to excellence.”
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) 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.
