Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. Magazine today revealed the Inc 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. MoLo made it’s debut on the list, ranking #41 overall throughout the country, as well as #1 in the state of Illinois, and #1 in our industry of Transportation & Logistics. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Our team has put in a lot of work the last four years to build MoLo to what it is today. To be recognized as the 41st fastest growing company in America is not surprising because I truly feel like we have earned it.
Many of us have put everything we have into this business to support one another, our drivers, and our shippers. While it has been a lot of work, we have also had a lot of fun along the way. There is no group of people I would rather be doing this with, and the most exciting part is we’re just getting started. This team can accomplish anything we set our minds to, and our mission remains the same: we will provide the best experience in transportation.”Andrew Silver, CEO of MoLo Solutions
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 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 top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
