We Are Proud to Be In The Top 500 Fastest Growing Companies In California

Inc. magazine today revealed that Digital Ink is No. 2765 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“When we set up the business in late 2014, this was an accolade that I put on the list as an achievement to strive for. Something to make sure we continued to push for more and continued to grow the business, never resting on our laurels. It has been a really fun journey—not easy—but fun, and I want to thank all our members of staff, my business partners and everyone who put the blood, sweat and tears into making this recognition a reality.” — Nick Ledue, CEO

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

Digital Ink’s growth has been driven by its brands BOSS Magazine and VENTURE Magazine, which have helped make it the No. 1 media company in San Diego. The company also offers a full suite of branding and agency services.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 18.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
