Broadleaf Commerce Named to 2018 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies in America For Second Year In A Row

Inc. Magazine has ranked Broadleaf Commerce, the enterprise eCommerce platform provider for custom commerce solutions, #2463 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, one of the most prestigious rankings of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list provides a comprehensive look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses.

“We are honored to be recognized once again as one of the fastest growing companies as part of the Inc. 5000,” stated Brian Polster, CEO of Broadleaf Commerce. “As the leading platform provider for customized commerce solutions including marketplace and B2B, the recognition validates the market acceptance of our framework and our mission to enable commerce innovation. ”

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.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“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.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.

Methodology

The 2018 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2014 and 2017. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2014. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2017. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
