BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LinkSquares, provider of the fastest and most comprehensive AI-powered contract lifecycle management and analysis tool, today announced several company and executive honors from the top entrepreneurial and tech organizations in the country. Inc. magazine revealed that LinkSquares is No. 253 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, placing the company ninth among companies in Massachusetts. As the highest-ranking contract lifecycle management company, the top Inc. 5000 placement reinforces LinkSquares’ spot as a growth leader for the CLM industry. Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) also announced that Vishal Sunak, CEO and co-founder of LinkSquares was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 New England Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies.
In 2021, LinkSquares also secured a spot among the SaaS Award finalists, which celebrate innovative software-as-a-service solutions with global reach. Named among the 2020 Gartner Cool Vendors for Contract Lifecycle Management and Advanced Contract Analytics, LinkSquares combines the power of a first-of-its-kind artificial intelligence with the expertise of its top legal customers to deliver the fastest and most comprehensive contract lifecycle management and analysis. The company recently raised $40 million in Series B financing led by Sorenson Capital, joined by LinkSquares’ existing investors as well as new investors Catalyst Investors, Xerox, Bottomline Technologies, and DraftKings’ founders and key legal and compliance executives.
“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.”
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. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“The past year caused a lot of upheaval for the legal industry, which needed new approaches to keep company contracts and the most precious information accessible, secure and actionable,” said LinkSquares’ Sunak. “Joining the ranks of the Inc. 5000 and Entrepreneur of the Year winners in New England is validation of our innovation and the mark we’ve made on contract lifecycle management. This win is thanks to our customers and all the hard work of our unstoppable team to achieve this growth.”
The Entrepreneur of the Year award recognizes those who are unstoppable entrepreneurial leaders, excelling in talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. For 35 years, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Vishal Sunak will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.
