SAN DIEGO, Aug. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Inc. magazine revealed that Reliant Funding is number 3,838 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. This is Reliant Funding's seventh consecutive year the Inc. 5000.
"This is our seventh consecutive year on the list, we know it'll be our best year yet with continued spectacular growth," said CEO of Reliant Funding, Adam Stettner. "Only a fraction of companies in the U.S. have the growth required to make this prestigious list and only one percent of companies recognized by Inc. have made the list seven times. I am very proud of our team for this incredible accomplishment."
When Reliant Funding launched in 2008, the economy was facing its most dangerous financial crisis since the Great Depression. Restricted access to working capital stifled America's small businesses; traditional banks were more risk adverse and less community focused. The Reliant Funding mission was born from the need to fill that financial gap. Since then, Reliant has funded over $1.5 billion dollars to nearly 50,000 small businesses nationwide.
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 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.
