The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

“It’s a huge honor for WillowTree to make the Inc. 5000 list for the fifth year in a row,” said Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree. “We’ve built one of the most talented teams of mobile app developers and UX designers in the industry and couldn’t be prouder of the work we’ve produced in partnership with our clients like GE, Johnson & Johnson, Time Warner, and Regal Cinemas to name a few. WillowTree’s continual growth is not only a testament to the increasing demand for app development services across the enterprise, media and entertainment, retail, and healthcare industries, but also the result of our steadfast commitment to upholding the incredible company culture we’ve created here at WillowTree, and our ability to consistently deliver high-quality products to our clients.”
“We’d like to thank our team who continuously deliver the best work for our partners and clients year after year," said Michael Prichard, CTO and Founder of WillowTree. "It is their hard work and consistent effort to keep ahead of the trends and technology that matters when it comes to the success of our clients and partners, and it's what puts WillowTree on the Inc. 5000 list for the fifth year in a row. There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of this team and in this industry, especially as more and more companies across sectors recognize the extraordinary outcomes apps and connected devices afford in terms of connecting with workforces and customers in new, meaningful, and value-adding ways.”
“For 35 years, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America into a very exclusive club,” said Inc. President and Editor-In-Cheif, Eric Schurenberg. “On average, the companies on the list have grown almost five-fold over the past three years. That’s a result most businesses can only dream of. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, WillowTree now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, GoPro, Timberland, Clif Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, and other notable alumni.”
The annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala honoring all the companies on this year’s list will be held from October 18 through 20, 2016 in San Antonio.
