We’re excited to announce that five BIP Capital portfolio companies have ranked in this year’s Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies. These companies include AchieveIt, QASymphony, Ingenious Med, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and VoApps.
The full Inc. 5000 list can be viewed online at Inc.com.
For 36 years, Inc. Magazine has recognized the fastest-growing private companies in America. According to the publication, companies that made this year’s list have on average grown sixfold since 2014 while the economy grew around 11 percent. Collectively, the companies amassed $206.2 billion in revenue in 2017, up 158 percent from $79.8 billion in 2014. This also accounts 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,” said James Ledbetter, Inc. editor in chief. “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.”
At BIP Capital, we’re honored to work closely with the entrepreneurs in our portfolio companies to help fuel results and make their vision a reality.
“It’s inspiring to see our portfolio companies being recognized by Inc. as it validates the hard work and dedication of their founders, managers and teams,” said Mark Buffington, CEO of BIP Capital. “Partnering with these innovators is an honor and privilege and we offer our sincere congratulations for jobs well done.”
We look forward to seeing even more of our portfolio companies on Inc.’s lists down the road.
