Panzura’s on the Inc. 5000 list. Sound familiar? That’s because it’s not our first time. We made the list last year, and it felt so good that we came back for more.

Make no mistake, being included in the Inc. 5000 is quite an accomplishment. We’re honored to be recognized for our continued growth and innovation, and we’re also proud of all our team members, customers, and partners who made this accomplishment possible.

What is the Inc. 5000?

The Inc. 5000 list is an annual ranking of the fastest-growing privately owned companies in the United States. Ranks are determined based on revenue over a three-year period. In a nutshell, the list is a celebration of innovation.

Companies that make Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies list have proven to be serious players in their industries. They’ve shown they are capable of running consistently successful businesses that are poised for future growth.

All 5000 companies named to the list are featured on In addition to the overall rankings, companies are ranked by industry, metro area, revenue, and number of employees. The top 500 also get featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, a distinguished honor. 

Why the Inc. 5000 List Matters

So, what’s the point of making the Inc. 5000 list in the first place? For starters, being named to the highly respected list showcases innovative companies to the world, allowing the world to get a glimpse into how others are moving the needle.  We're quite inspired by our fellow honorees, and hope that we can serve as a source of inspiration for the rest of the hard-working companies out there!

The Inc. 5000 list also opens the door to new opportunities for funding and partnerships. Investors are looking for companies who have proven they are committed to excellence in their industries, and the Inc. 5000 gives them 5000 contenders who are just that - a win in general for technology and other honored industries.

But let’s be honest — companies are only as successful as their teams. The Inc. 5000 list is a powerful way for outstanding teams to receive the recognition they deserve.

But this list isn’t the climax of a company’s success — it’s only the beginning. Many recognized businesses have gone on to become titans in their industries. Companies like Facebook, Patagonia, and Microsoft gained their first significant national exposure by making the Inc. 5000. These companies — and many more — now serve as role models for other businesses starting their respective journeys toward success.
