With Three-Year Growth of 416 Percent, Inspire11 is the 149th Fastest-Growing Company in Business Services and Products.

Chicago, IL – August 16, 2022 – Inspire11, a global consulting firm working with people and organizations to deliver growth, innovation, and competitive advantage, announces it has been named an Inc. 5000 fastest-growing, privately-owned company in America for the third consecutive year! As the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, the list presents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy. For the 2022 list, Inspire11 ranks No. 1,538, placing them as the 149th fastest-growing company in business services and products, 72nd in fastest-growing companies in Illinois, and 67th in fastest-growing companies in Chicago. This year’s Inc. 5000 recognition puts Inspire11 in the top 0.07% of all privately-owned companies in America in terms of multi-year growth. 

“We are honored and humbled to be recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the 5000 fastest-growing companies in the U.S for the third year in a row! This recognition reflects the hard work and amazing support from our clients, employees, partners, and investors,” said Hans Nelson, President and Founder of Inspire11. “We believe this momentum is made possible with a commitment to responsible growth. This means growth for the sake of realizing our vision… to inspire a better tomorrow for all.”  

The Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States was first introduced by Inc in 1982. Since then, this prestigious list has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success and the place where future household names first make their mark. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and numerous other well-known brands have been honored by the Inc. 5000. The criteria for making this list involve three main components; company size, percentage revenue growth over a 3-year period, and 3-year revenue growth.  

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 fastest-growing company list have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of COVID-19.  

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that establish themselves through innovation, hard work, and rise to the challenges of today.”
