About Inc. 500 and Inc. 5000

Inc. magazine, founded in 1979 and based in New York City, is an American monthly publication focused on growing companies.  The magazine publishes an annual list of the 500 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., the “Inc. 500,” which was introduced in 1982.  The Inc. 5000 is an expansion of the Inc. 500, which ranks the country’s top 5000 fastest-growing private companies and also features a special ranking of the top 10% of the list as the Inc. 500.

The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a four-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of the starting calendar year, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales.  Companies have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies— as of December 31, 2015.  The minimum revenue required for 2012 is $100,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million.
