Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000 – And Tribu’s on the List!
August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Tribu, a digital marketing and branding firm in San Antonio, is No. 2,637 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
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.
“It’s extra special to be on this year’s list. For the second time in a row, we’re fortunate to be listed and that alone is quite a blessing, but this year feels sweeter because it includes Tribu’s 2020 performance – no doubt one of the toughest growth years, and toughest years in general, we’ve seen as a society. It’s the hard work and dedication of the ingenious Tribe at Tribu that is a large part of the reason we get to enjoy this honor. It’s also because of our customers, who we call our Tribe Partners. They believe in us, and that fuels us to build them some very mighty tribes.” – Sara Helmy, CEO
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.
“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.”
