Inc. magazine today revealed that SoftDev is No. 1417 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, 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.

“Being on the Inc. 5000 list for two consecutive years with an improved ranking [from 3961 to 1417] is a significant achievement. I am extremely proud of SoftDev’s growth due to the tremendous performance of our employees” said Robin Kaiser, SoftDev President. SoftDev will look to continue its move up the list in 2019 and is looking to recent and expected contract successes as well as planned business development activities to make that happen.

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“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.”

SoftDev will attend the annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list on October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas
