The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Ranking on the list gets harder every year as a company’s starting base grows. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere one in six have made the list four times, as Abstrakt has achieved this year!
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
