Inc. magazine ranked o9 Solutions at No. 657 on its 2019 Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This marks the second year in a row that o9 has landed on the list, with a revenue growth of 669% earning the company its spot in the top 15% of the rankings. The annual list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment.
“o9 has been riding a wave of tremendous growth and market enthusiasm for the last several years,” said Chakri Gottemukkala, CEO of o9 Solutions. “As we’ve acquired numerous clients who represent the biggest brand names in global business, I’ve often been asked how we do it, and there are two primary reasons. Number one, our o9 team is comprised of the best and brightest in the industry, many of whom helped pioneer the supply chain planning space. Number two, our clients recognize the differentiation of the o9 platform. We’ve designed the platform to have the same ease of use that we enjoy and expect in consumer applications—like the immediate answers generated by Google, the demand/supply matching capabilities of rideshare apps, and the collaboration tools enabled by social media. That breaks the mold of traditional enterprise planning software and builds a superior level of user adoption for our clients.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The aggregate revenue of the Inc. 5000 totals $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
