The Inc. 5,000 is's annual list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S. It was first launched in 2007 as a tenfold expansion of the 25-year-old Inc. 500, which has featured many companies before they became world-renowned, including Microsoft, Domino's Pizza, and Oracle. Every company honored on the inaugural Inc. 5,000 was profiled on You can check out the 2007 Inc. 5,000 here. The top 500, the Inc. 500, were also featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine. All of the Inc. 5,000 profiles were based on interviews with company management. We invite you to apply for the 2008 Inc. 5,000 today! The deadline is April 30, 2008.

The Inc. 5,000 also recognizes the top 100 companies in every major metro area, the top 100 companies in each of our industry categories, and several other top 100 lists. How many of these lists will your company make?

Why should you enter?

The Inc. 5,000 is an elite- a mere sliver of the more than seven million companies in the U.S. that have employees. All 5,000 companies get their own separate, linkable profile pages on If your company makes the top ten percent of the Inc. 5,000-the Inc. 500-it will be profiled in Inc. magazine. All of the Inc. 5,000 will be covered in local and national media, and receive attention and recognition from customers, partners, and investors. This impartial benchmark will give your employees concrete evidence that their years of hard work have paid off.

You'll get a wealth of new ways to market your company with our press release templates, reprint packages, and the ability to license the Inc. 500 or Inc. 5,000 logo for use on your website and written materials. You'll have the opportunity to attend the 2008 Inc. 5,000 conference in Washington, D.C. next September, which will be packed with great speakers and educational sessions. There you'll also network with and learn from your peers. These are people who, like you, are experiencing their success right now, not looking back at it.
