NEW YORK, August 15, 2023 – Inc. revealed today that Accredible ranks No. 1258 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It’s an honor to be recognized among such a strong group of pioneering and innovative companies,” said Danny King, Accredible CEO and Co-Founder. “Being named to the Inc. 5000, and ranked number 25 in education, is incredibly humbling.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
For complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, location, and other criteria, go to www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
King added, “The success of Accredible is directly because of the quality of our team. Every person who works at Accredible is working toward our mission, and the growth we see today is a reflection of that. We are here because of them.”
Accredible, now in its tenth year, has seen rapid growth since 2020. Increasing its customer base to include over 2500 of the world’s leading education, training, and membership organizations and issuing over 70 million digital credentials, Accredible is proud to help its partners close the skills gap and democratize education while supporting the goal of so many: a sustainable career that grows with their continued mastery of skills.
