Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that KP Aviation is No. 4056 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.
“KP Aviation was founded shortly before the devastation of 9/11 and is no stranger to navigating murky waters,” says KP Aviation CEO, Kim Schulze. “While the pandemic was particularly humbling for the aviation industry, our team took it as another opportunity to gain perspective and persist through difficult times. We successfully pivoted under pressure and are proud of our financial achievements over the last year, showing a growth of 175%.”
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 news stands on August 20th.
“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.”
