Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
NEW YORK, August 17, 2016 – Inc. magazine today ranked REI Network, LP on its 35th 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. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
REI Network, LP appeared on the list for the third consecutive year, ranking with a sales growth of 325%, thanks to their continued commitment to providing high-quality tools and services to real estate investors.
Alex Soares, President of REI Network, LP, commented, “It’s a huge honor to be included in the Inc 5000 list, and to have made the list for 3 consecutive years is a testament to the efforts of our team and the support of our customers. At REI, we strive to transform the lives of our customers. They often come to us distressed, hopeful, sometimes desperate, to make a change in their lives. They choose real estate investing as the path towards that change–some want a shot at a new career. Others need additional income to pay down debt or put their kids through college. Many are ready to retire but don’t have enough savings to quit their job.”
Soares continued, saying, “Our mission is to give [investors] tools to make their real estate investing dreams possible and help them achieve those goals. That’s why we think of ourselves as selling more than real estate information or training. It really is about empowering our investors to do good and do better. To break free. That’s where the entrepreneurial spirit lies. Being included in the list along with such successful and innovative businesses is a great signal that we are making good progress towards our mission.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
