Inc. magazine today revealed that Trade Ideas is No. 3,012 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, 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. Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

2018 is the second year Trade Ideas makes the Inc. 5000 list. In 2017, Trade Ideas debuted on the list at no. 4,129 with 64% three-year sales growth and moves up dramatically in 2018 to no. 3,012 with 134% three-year sales growth this time.

It’s a testament to our incredible subscriber growth, and an affirmation that our technology is leading the way in the financial technology sector.

Over the last three years, Trade Ideas’ organic, number of paying subscribers has grown by 302% and sales revenue by 134%. “We’ve been a technology leader and data partner in the FinTech space for over a decade, it’s only in the last five when we seriously focused on selling subscriptions directly to consumers,” explains Scott Olson, director of Marketing at Trade Ideas, “and the response from self-directed investors and traders to our technology plus education model has been fantastic. We bookend all subscriptions with online classes, continuing trader education, and robust support.”

Companies on the 2018 Inc. 500 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2014 to 2017. The minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is $2 million.
