NEW YORK and BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine revealed that Donuts Inc., the global leader in next-generation top-level descriptive domains and digital identity, ranked as one of the fastest-growing companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list. The list contains the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies and represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
"We are delighted with this prestigious honor," said Akram J. Atallah, CEO, Donuts Inc. "At Donuts Inc., we strive to be good at everything we do and are devoted to creating success in the entire ecosystem of employees, customers and suppliers. And with the ongoing expansion of the internet and the need for more descriptive, meaningful domain name options, we are more relevant than ever."
"Businesses of all sizes and types are embracing new descriptive domain names recognizing the power in promoting their brands online with optimum SEO impact," Atallah continued. "We provide options they have never had before with the world's largest portfolio of new memorable domain names ranging from dxc.technology, to amazon.care, to ikea.today, to switchboard.live. We expect that Donuts' Inc. 5000 achievement will demonstrate the worldwide success of descriptive domains and accelerate their adoption and use."
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.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
"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."
