“It is truly and honor to be recognized as one of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies by the INC 5000,” Operative IQ CEO EJ Auferheide said. “With the support of our amazing clients, partners and dedicated team, we continue to see outstanding organic growth. This allows us to make continuous investments in our applications, services and team members. Together we are creating something very special.”

With this announcement, Operative IQ joins a prestigious community of industry thought leaders as Inc. 5000’s annual 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.

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at, 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,” Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter said. “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.”

Inc. Magazine’s 2019 Inc. 5000 list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015.
