AnswerLab, the leading user experience research firm, today announced its ranking of 1788 on Inc. Magazines’ sixth annual Inc. 500|5000 list. The list is an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
The Inc. 500|5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. AnswerLab joins Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani, Levi Strauss, and KIND, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“As a four time honoree of the Inc. list, AnswerLab is proud to be ranked among the country’s most vibrant and successful private organizations,” said Amy Buckner Chowdhry, AnswerLab CEO and Co-Founder. “We look forward to continued strong growth as the need for user experience research and consulting increases with the proliferation of web, mobile and tablet platforms.”
AnswerLab has grown significantly, expanding operations to include an East Coast office in New York’s Flatiron district earlier this year.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
