Inc. magazine recently revealed its 2021 Inc. 5000 list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the U.S., and FarWell made the list once again. This is FarWell’s fifth consecutive year.

Making the list for our growth in 2020, during massive change, is an achievement we attribute to the fortitude of the entire FarWell team.

The Inc. 5000 is a prestigious list. It’s a unique look at some of the most successful companies within the American economy – its independent small businesses. Giant firms such as Intuit, Zappos, Patagonia, and many others gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Only six percent of this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have earned the honor five years in a row.

“Earning a spot on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list is more meaningful than ever, given the challenges all businesses had to navigate in 2020. FarWell is a team of humble, collaborative advisors who love to solve problems, achieve ambitious goals, and deliver superb customer experiences.

This was especially true last year, when our entire team pulled together to stay focused and clear some impressive hurdles. FarWell’s core values – Humility, Collaboration, and Accountability – were key to our accomplishments. The fact that the year was so successful for FarWell is a testament to the persistence and fortitude of the entire team.”

Jason Potter, FarWell Co-Founder & CEO

The companies on the 2021 Inc 5000 list showed themselves to be especially resilient and flexible, given 2020’s unprecedented challenges.

Among the 5,000 companies on the Inc. list, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, over the past three years, these companies added more than 610,000 jobs.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled. 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.”
