The 2019 list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists, with a median three-year growth rate of 157 percent.

"It’s a tremendous honor to be ranked again near the top of the Inc. 5000," said Amena Ali, Chief Executive Officer of VividCortex. “It’s exciting to realize that VividCortex is one of America’s fastest growing private companies across all industry sectors, the top-ranked software firm in our home state of Virginia and ranked number 78 among all software companies on the list. We continue to grow so fast – more than quadrupling the median three-year growth rate of Inc. 5000 companies — because we provide hundreds of customers like Shopify, Okta and DraftKings with visibility into database performance so their entire engineering team can go faster, meeting their end-customer needs with more efficient databases and code."

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said 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.


The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
