Inc. revealed today that Full Circle Research ranks No. 4418 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses.
“There’s only one way to achieve a six-peat on the Inc. 5000: consistency,” said Adam Weinstein, Full Circle Co-CEO, on behalf of himself and co-CEO Nate Lynch. “Consistent passion, drive, strategy, innovation, and recognition that our team is our greatest resource is why we lead the insights industry in quality product, consultative service and steady growth.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue gains while navigating inflationary pressure and the rising costs of capital. A testament to Full Circle’s endurance is the hiring of four senior-level employees since being named to the list in 2022. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.
