Inc500_SFSInc. magazine today revealed that Standard For Success, LLC (SFS) is No. 3525 on its annual Inc. 5000 list and No. 55 in the Education sector, 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Inc. 5000 along with so many outstanding companies,” said SFS’s CEO and Co-Founder, Todd Whitlock. “Our team of dedicated educational specialists and partners have collaborated to bring innovative software to educational institutions around the world in alignment of our mission to help develop Better Teachers, Better Students, and a Better World.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
