For the 6th Time, AustinCSI Appears on the Inc. 5000 list, Ranking No. 4124 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 66%
New York, Inc. magazine today ranked AustinCSI No. 4124 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000. This list represents the most successful companies within the most dynamic segment of the American economy— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“It's one thing to have a dream, another to have the courage to act on it. But it only has meaning when others believe in you and take you along for the ride.” – Karen Moree & Rizwan Sheikh, AustinCSI Managing Partners.
The 2017 Inc. 5000, recognizes the fastest-growing private companies in America through their release of the highly regarded Inc. 5000 list. This year, the list includes companies who have grown, on average, sixfold since 2013. In an economy that has only seen a 6.7% growth throughout the same period, this is a feat many businesses could possibly not achieve. To be recognized once, out of the thousands of companies who apply, is a prestigious honor. To be recognized 6 times is nearly unheard of. In fact, only 4% have made the list 6 times. AustinCSI is not only a part of the 4% to earn a place on the list but has done so for 6 consecutive years.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
