Inc. magazine revealed that Connected2Fiber is No. 1517 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. It’s not entirely surprising given both the company’s SaaS solution and ecosystem continue to serve as an essential tool for broadband buying, selling and go-to-market strategies. It’s the quintessential right solution, right time and right place scenario.
“The problems we’re solving for in the connectivity space and the way in which we’re solving them has led to phenomenal growth for our organization. To be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list is an amazing feeling and, as I’ve said before, a direct result of the quality of our technology and the people that operate this business each day.” – Ben Edmond, Founder and CEO at Connected2Fiber.
Complementing its place on the 2021 Inc. 5000, in May, Connected2Fiber was named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021, among receiving numerous industry and solution awards over the last few years. The two prestigious Inc. awards cap what has been an outstanding growth period for Connected2Fiber over the past 12 months, including:
- Securing $12 million in Series B financing
- Serving the top 10 fiber infrastructure providers and MSOs in the United States
- Serving 4 out of the top 5 LECs and network-oriented managed service providers in the United States
- 108% jump in platform users over the past year
- 390% year-over-year increase in locations managed by customers
- 213% year-over-year increase in unique entity locations tracked globally
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
