Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000 list is a compilation of the fastest growing companies in America. This year, those companies making the list have demonstrated brains, bravery, and optimism amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Each of these companies has their own tale of persistence, perseverance, and pluck. Knight Federal Solutions is no exception. For the third year in a row, the company has earned a spot on the coveted list with a three-year revenue growth of 58 percent, companies that have placed three or more times comprise 41.62 percent of the list. The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look into the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armor, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 have been very competitive within their markets, but also proved especially resilient and flexible. Average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Combined the companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
