Wizeline Debuts on Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, Doubling Its Services Revenue YoY
San Francisco, CA, USA. August 19, 2021 — Wizeline, a global technology services provider that builds high-quality digital products and platforms, today announced it ranked No. 1752 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Inc. 5000 companies are U.S.-based privately held companies ranked based on the percentage of revenue growth from the previous three years. Microsoft, LinkedIn, Zappos, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“We are excited to be recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest-growing companies in America, and we attribute our growth and success to our thousands of Wizeliners and our growing roster of global customers, who trust us to deliver digital products and solutions that make a positive impact on their businesses,” said Bismarck Lepe, Founder and CEO of Wizeline. “As we continue to scale the company, we are capitalizing on greater opportunities to partner with customers on ambitious projects, providing our employees with more possibilities for career development, and investing more to develop tech talent in our communities through Wizeline Academy and our partnerships with local universities.”
Wizeline Academy, a community-based education program that offers free in-person and online courses on today’s most valuable technical skills to aspiring IT professionals, has served as a cornerstone of the company’s success. With more than 25,000 students from around the world, the program offers a high-quality supply model for the company, allowing Wizeline to retain, scale and certify talent in all locations.
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
