Inc. Magazine Now Accepting Applications For The 2014 Inc. 500|5000

  • February 13, 2014

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Inc. Magazine, the only major business magazine created solely for CEOs of fast-growing, private companies, is now accepting applications for the Inc. 500|5000, the closely watched ranking of America’s fastest-growing companies. As America’s most celebrated showcase of entrepreneurial success, the Inc. 500|5000 list is pored over by entrepreneurs, policy makers and venture capitalists alike. It has traditionally been the first to take note of companies that later go on to be household names. Among the companies to gain early exposure on the Inc. 500 are Microsoft, Oracle, Intuit, Zappos, Clif Bar, Jamba Juice, Zipcar and Vizio.

Applications for the 2014 list will be accepted at http://www.inc5000apply.com/ until April 30, 2014. To qualify, companies must be at least three years old, with 2010 revenues of at least $100,000 and 2013 revenues of at least $2 million.

Winning admission to the Inc. 500|5000 can be an important branding and publicity opportunity for a company that makes the cut. Honorees receive a profile page on Inc.com. In 2013, the list received over 25 million media impressions. In addition, the top 500 companies are prominently displayed in Inc.’s September issue, and several companies are selected for in-depth articles.

Even applying for the Inc. 500|5000 can help a company raise its profile. Every week Inc.com highlights an intriguing company as “Applicant of the Week.” Companies that apply early have the best chance of being featured.

The list debuted in 1982 as a ranking of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. The following year, it expanded to the Inc. 500 and, in 2007, the Inc. 5000 was inaugurated. Through each evolution, Inc. has sought to celebrate the creativity, dedication, and hard work of entrepreneurs and their crucial contribution to American prosperity.

Methodology

The 2014 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2013. The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000/list.
