For entrepreneurs nationwide, the past year has been a defining one.

Perhaps you persevered through struggle and sacrifice. Maybe you're well-positioned to help people through the pandemic, and your business took off. Share that accomplishment with the world by applying for this year's Inc. 5000 ranking of fastest-growing companies in America.

In any normal year, making the list is a huge opportunity for a growing business. This year, the 5,000 companies that have grown the most against an incredibly challenging economic backdrop will be a particularly special group--full of entrepreneurs and business owners who found a path forward, when it seemed bleakest.

You could be one of them. And by making the list, you'll gain access to a powerful networking group of your fellow honorees--not to mention, high-profile alumni with experience leading through economic recoveries, like real estate marketplace giant Zillow or food icon Kind Snacks. Here are a few more benefits to being named one of the fastest-growing companies in America:

  • Increased credibility with your clients, investors, prospective employees, and the media.

  • A dedicated company profile page on Inc. 5000 company profile pages receive millions of online impressions each year.

  • For the top 500 businesses on the list, an appearance in Inc.'s print edition.

  • New, powerful tools for your marketing and promotion efforts.

  • A large boost to employee morale, right when we could all use a celebration or two.

The early-rate deadline is March 26, and the final deadline is April 30. Apply today.
