The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2016 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $2 million.
"Since our beginning—and especially during the last 18 months—we have focused on accelerating CPA firm innovation and are grateful to partner with so many top firms to continue this mission of innovation!"
Botkeeper’s ranking—at number 850 on the list—is based on 560% revenue growth from 2016 to 2019. While we know this recognition comes as the result of a lot of hard work from our Botkeeper team, it also points to the strong support we’ve received from our clients and friends. And for that, we say thank you!
“We’re honored and excited to be included on the Inc. 5000 for the first time,” said Botkeeper President & CRO Chris Mahl. “Since our beginning—and especially during the last 18 months—we have focused on accelerating CPA firm innovation and are grateful to partner with so many top firms to continue this mission of innovation!"
Just a couple weeks ago we were celebrating our five-year anniversary, and today we’re overjoyed to be celebrating another milestone with this announcement.
But we don’t do anything for the awards and recognition, and we know that being in the top 20% of the Inc. 5000 list doesn’t signal that our work is done. At a time when businesses across the country and the world are struggling to make ends meet and stay afloat, we remain committed to serving our clients and their customers now and in the future.
Again, thanks for your support and for making Botkeeper what it is today!
