Inc. Magazine Unveils Its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
AIIR Consulting Ranks No. 1078 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 List with a Growth Rate of 388%
NEW YORK, August 14, 2019 – Inc. magazine today revealed that AIIR Consulting is No. 1078 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. 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.
“Inc. Magazine was one of the first business publications I subscribed to after starting AIIR,” says Jonathan Kirschner, founder and CEO of AIIR Consulting. “Reading about successful entrepreneurs who took their companies from an idea to an enterprise was like looking at a tall mountain while standing at the base. Ten years later, we have earned our spot.”

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 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.
“To be on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing US companies is an incredible honor that is both humbling while simultaneously invigorating,” says Kirschner. “The outsize impact we’ve had the privilege to create for our customers is only beat by the huge potential we have right now if we aim high and believe that we can.”
“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.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
