SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Impact, a natively-integrated suite of products for fraud protection, marketing attribution and analytics, and creating and optimizing performance partnerships, announced it has been included on Inc. Magazine's 37th 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.
“Everyone at Impact is committed to answering the call of marketers around the world who are demanding transparency, trust and performance across their spend to scale their business growth,” stated David A. Yovanno, CEO of Impact. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work we do to deliver a customer-driven technology platform that transforms businesses, and continues to resonate with savvy CMOs, marketers and their agencies. It’s an honor to be recognized by Inc.”
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., and were made available on newsstands on August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting 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,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “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.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
