Inc. magazine is expanding its 5000 lists

Inc. is expanding its annual 5000 list with the launch a regional spinoff series, reports Melynda Fuller of Publishers Daily.

Fuller reports, “The series focuses on five specific states or regions, with lists recognizing its fastest-growing companies.

“‘The Inc. 5000 is a great honor — companies need to prove tremendous growth to be named to the list — which makes it an exclusive flagship event,’ Scott Omelianuk, EIC of Inc., told Publishers Daily.

“‘But at those events — seeing the support, networking, and knowledge exchange that occurs among entrepreneurs made us realize how useful Inc. could be as a facilitator more than just once a year. The regional events are an opportunity to amplify how we serve the American business community,’  he added.

“California’s list launched this week, noting the state’s 250 fastest-growing private companies. Inc. notes the total combined revenues from those businesses rose 168% between 2016 and 2018, resulting in $5.5 billion, and created 26,000 jobs.”
