We’ve Made It to the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies
Writer: Daniel Kremsa
Every year, Inc. Magazine generates a list featuring the top 5,000 most successful and thriving private companies throughout the U.S. And this year, Pastilla is one of them.
Making it onto the list is already a huge honor for any business, given that the U.S. is home to nearly 27 million privately-held companies. But considering the immense economic challenges of the past few years, the 5,000 companies that get featured deserve even more praise for managing to stay on the path of success and move forward despite the not-so-favorable circumstances. With that said, Pastilla is delighted to share this honor with our clients, colleagues, partners – and friends.
“The truth is, more than half a million businesses close each year, according to the Fed. Of course, closing likely never occurred to you,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “You were too busy making dreams out of nightmares. That’s tough. It’s savvy. It’s something my team and I—and anyone who follows business— admire. Truly.” And for us, that makes our spot on this list that much more meaningful and noteworthy.
What’s the Inc. 5000 List about?
Inc. Magazine – the world’s most trusted business-media brand – first introduced the Inc. 500 list in 1982. It was their way of compiling and recognizing some of the most successful and fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. The idea was to give credit where credit is due. But over the years, this list grew into one of the most prestigious ranking systems – the hallmark of entrepreneurial success in the United States.
In fact, many of today’s “household names” first got into the spotlight and made their mark on the market by being featured in the Inc. 5000 list.
As the influence of this acclaimed list continued to grow, so did the need to extend it and make room for more companies that deserved recognition. Finally, in 2007, the Inc. 500 list expanded, becoming the Inc. 5000 we know now. Today, it stands as a highly reputable compilation of the most noteworthy examples of company growth and development.
“We are extremely excited to be honorees on the Inc. 5000 list,” said Rudy Manning, Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer of Pastilla. “The growth we’ve had in recent years is a clear indication of our incredible hard-working dedicated team and the commitment and passion in the service we provide to our clients.”
