BowPoint, LLC (“BowPoint”), a St. Louis based buyside mergers and acquisitions firm has been named by Inc.

BowPoint joins companies such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many others who first gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. The 2020 Inc. 5000 winners achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median revenue growth rate of 165 percent, with aggregate revenue of $209 billion in 2019.

“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.”

BowPoint’s rapid revenue growth has been the result of the successful completion of a record 19 transactions in 2019 involving buyers and sellers headquartered in 13 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces, accounting for over $350 Million in total enterprise value, with completed transactions within the niche manufacturing, value-added distribution, industrial products, medical equipment, residential services, consumer services, industrial services, financial services, branded consumer products, and food co-packing industries.
