COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. Magazine released its 2016 Inc. 5000 list today on Inc.com. Of the top 500 fastest-growing privately held companies in the country recognized, nine are headquartered in Ohio, including Columbus-based, Idea Buyer, LLC.
As one of the most prestigious awards in business, the Inc. 5000 is known to have the cream of the crop apply for this award and it was evident as they called this year's list one of the most competitive. The average percentage of three-year revenue growth for the Inc. 5000 list was 433%. More than quadrupling the average at 1,192.2%, Idea Buyer's growth was noted in its placement at No. 197.
Idea Buyer President & CEO, Eric Corl, attributes some of their success to the state being small-business friendly:
"In addition to Ohio, specifically Columbus, boasting a supportive entrepreneurial community, the individuals that make up our company are the real reason that we have grown so drastically," says Corl. "Some of these people have been on board since the beginning, over ten years, and without them we wouldn't be where we are today."
The 35th annual Inc. 5000 list only included privately-owned, independent, for profit, U.S based companies with a minimum 2012 annual revenue of $100,000 and a minimum 2015 annual revenue of $2 million.
"Our company is unique in the sense that we are growing organically," says Idea Buyer Partner, Colin Egbert. "With no debt, our focus is solely on growth and that's rare, especially on a list like this."
Along with the other companies recognized on the Inc. 500 list, Idea Buyer's ranking will be published in the September issue of Inc. Magazine. The Inc. 5000 conference and awards ceremony will be October 18-20 in San Antonio, Texas.
