Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
KECH, Inc. Ranks No. 410 on the 2021 Inc. 5000, with Three-Year Revenue Growth of 1,187 Percent
NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that KECH, Inc. is No. 410 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.
“We are so honored to be recognized in the top 10% of fastest growing companies by Inc. magazine. We are so proud of the whole team at KECH, and we know that we wouldn’t be here without the dedication and hard work that our team puts in every day!” said Chris Carpenter, CEO.
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 newsstands on August 23rd.
Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $2 million.
