What! We're honored and excited to share that we've made Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, coming in at No. 2952.
“We’re honored to have been recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US,” said Wendy Gonzalez, President and Interim CEO of Sama. “While this year has been challenging in many ways, it has been a year of growth for AI technologies and the high-quality data that powers them. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication our team has demonstrated throughout the last decade. I’m proud of how far we’ve come and look forward to the advancements that lie ahead.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
“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.”
What a great way to take stock of business and continue our journey together with renewed ambitions.
