251% growth shows just how disruptive the company has been within the business information industry.
Creditsafe, the global business intelligence leader, announced it had been selected by INC. Magazine as one of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the 2nd year in a row.
“Our team is extremely humbled to be included in such an elite group of high-growth companies,” said Matthew Debbage, CEO of Creditsafe USA and Asia. “When we established here six years ago, there was one large entrenched player in the business credit space in the US, so we felt our success was far from a sure thing. This recognition really helps put our hard work into perspective.”
Since launching six years ago, Creditsafe USA has set out to disrupt the business credit space and attributes it’s high-growth to a number of factors:
- Development of one of the largest, and most valuable, business information databases in the world.
- Built a world class team of talented, engaged individuals.
- Alternative Datasets, such as Financial Trade, that offer substantially better data for our clients who need to understand the finances of small-to-medium sizes business.
- Our partners and customers, many of whom also made this Inc 5000 list, who are leveraging our data to ensure they’re making great financial decisions as they grow
“Being the younger, more nimble and tech-friendly player in the space has given many advantages as we strive to provide exceptional value to our customers,” continued Debbage. “We know that if are going to disrupt the industry, then we’d need to out-hustle our competition each and every day and really want to thank all those customers who’ve taken a chance on us.”
Each year for the past 36 years, Inc. has recognized the fastest growing private companies in America. 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.”
