)-- Inc. magazine revealed that Booksy is No. 299 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.
“We started Booksy simply because we saw a need that wasn't being properly met,” says Booksy CEO and co-founder Stefan Batory. “And through the years, we've kept our heads down and focused on helping tens of thousands of barbers and nail technicians and hair stylists run their businesses and millions of consumers book appointments.

We're eternally humble and grateful to be acknowledged and thank all of the many small business owners who trust us with their schedules every day.”
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “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.”
