Domino Data Lab Makes Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
August 19, 2019
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Inc. magazine yesterday revealed that Domino Data Lab ranked 298 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Domino Data Lab provides data science teams with an industry-leading open data science platform that empowers enterprises to manage data science at scale. The road to AI, machine learning, and predictive analytics is built on models and Domino provides a solution for businesses in Biotech, Retail, Insurance, Finance, and more.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are thrilled to make our debut on this year’s Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America,” said Nick Elprin, co-founder and CEO of Domino. “It’s an honor to be ranked alongside such an elite group of companies and this achievement is truly a testament to the innovative, committed and hard-working team at Domino and what we do to deliver a platform designed for the modern, model-driven enterprise.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) 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.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
