Ad.net, the search marketplace outside of traditional incumbents, announced today it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“For 20 years, Ad.net has been a leader in the digital marketing and advertising industries, consistently developing new ways to support our big brand clients in meeting and exceeding their goals,” said Jon Waterman, founder and CEO of Ad.net. “The recognition from Inc. Magazine is a testament to the strength and growth of our organization, and we’re excited to continue being a destination for our advertisers looking to find the right customers, in the right place, and at the right time.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
