Offbeat is Named the 403th Among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies on the Inc 5000 List and 3rd Fastest Growing Media Company!
Inc. revealed that Offbeat Media Group is the 403rd fastest growing privately-owned company on its annual Inc. 5000 list!
This list is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The Inc 5000 represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.
Facebook, Chobani, UnderArmour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021. The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on the business community. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation,hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
Since our inception in 2018, we have always strived to create a leading, and growth-focused media company that empowers the creators we work with and create, the brands and partners we activate with, and, most importantly, our team. We would not be able to come up with the content we create, work with the influencers and partners we do, or have created either of our virtual beings without our amazing team.
We have grown our Offbeat team in a remote-first capacity since 2020. But, unlike many other companies who went remote in the pandemic, we decided it wasn't going to be a transferral of old-world policies to a new-world environment. We built the culture of Offbeat fully online, and completely intentionally.
We created a fully VR Clubhouse for our employees to work, socialize, and play in and sent each employee a Quest VR headset. Additionally, we created moments of engagement outside of work that emphasize our values. We have a wellness challenge that encourages our employees to get out of the house and keep up their physical health. We know that a person's whole health is important, so we also have mental health benefits for employees on our healthcare plans. There is also a lively Offbeat book club where employees read a book a month and gather outside of work parameters to discuss!
None of these elements will be directly listed in our Inc 5000 recognition. But, it is because of the people who invest their time, expertise, and attention into Offbeat that we are able to grow at the rapid clip that we do. We want to thank the Inc 5000 for this honor but most of all our team, partners, and fans.
