Inc. magazine today revealed that VENZA is No. 1799 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. 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.
"Moving up the list from No. 3259 last year to No. 1799 this year is amazing. The growth VENZA has experienced these past few years is the result of hard-working employees committed to protecting data in an industry that needs it the most. The hospitality industry is sitting on more personal data than most industries and is a target for the bad guys," says Jeff Venza, Chairman & CEO of VENZA. "We are honored to rank again in the list of fastest-growing companies and proud of our team's continued accomplishments."
The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction will make the list more than once with a mere one in four companies making the list twice.
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 companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success," says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. "There's no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities."
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
