THRIVE Earns A Spot On The Inc. 5000 List For A Second Year.
ATLANTA, GA, August 18, 2017 – THRIVE, a premier Product Development and Innovation Strategy firm is excited to announce it has earned a spot on Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000 listing of fastest-growing private companies for a second time. For 36 years, Inc. magazine has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America into this very exclusive club (http://inc.com/inc5000). THRIVE secured the 4428 spot on the prestigious list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small and mid-sized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“THRIVE ranking on the Inc. 5000 emphasizes the achievements we’ve made as a company,” said Jonathan Dalton, THRIVE Co-Founder and CEO. “We design growth for our client’s everyday, but the Inc. 5000 shows how passionate we are about our own growth as a team, and that all the hard work put in by Thrivers is truly paying off.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 5000 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 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 Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1 New York Times bestseller Brené Brown, and Gravity Payments’ founder and CEO Dan Price.
