After years of dedication, hard work, innovation, and determination, we are incredibly proud to announce that we have earned our place among America’s top performers. Inc. Magazine revealed its prestigious 2021 Inc. 5000 list today. Cielo WiGle (Cielo) ranked No.358, making it to the top 10% with an astounding growth rate of 1,325% from 2017 to 2020. In addition, Cielo secured 33rd position in the category of Consumer Products and Services Industry, 6th in Metro rank, and 7th in State rank in Washington.
What Is the Inc. 5000, And Why Does It Matter?
Inc. Magazine is the world’s most trusted business-media brand. The magazine publishes the official Inc. 5000 list annually, which honors America’s most successful independent businesses. Many notable companies such as Microsoft, Under Armour, and Patagonia received their first national acclaim by landing a spot on this coveted list.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
While getting on the list is a challenging feat to accomplish every year, this year was particularly competitive. The Inc. 5000 2021 companies achieved an average median three-year growth rate of 543% and generated a median revenue of $11.1 million. They are also credited with creating 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
To be included in the 2021 Inc. 5000, a company must be privately owned, for-profit, independent, and based in America. Companies must also have generated revenue from March 2017 onwards; the minimum generated revenue should be $100,000 in 2017 and $2 million in 2020.
