AUSTIN, TX — September 12, 2017 — Advanced Discovery, a leading global eDiscovery and risk management company, today announces Inc. magazine ranked the company #172 in the highly competitive Business Products and Services category, and #1950 overall on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 (https://www.inc.com/profile/advanced-discovery), the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This marks the sixth consecutive year the company has received this honor – something only four percent of companies have done in the last 36 years. Advanced Discovery has now gained entry into the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame and is among only 91 Business Products and Services companies in the nation with at least five appearances on the list.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the U.S. economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known brands gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to be among the few companies to be named to the Inc. 5000 list six years in a row,” states Jim Burke, CEO of Advanced Discovery. “This award reflects the investments Advanced Discovery has made in its clients, team members and technology. We are a high-growth company because we deliver consistently on high-stakes, high-volume and high-speed eDiscovery and risk management matters.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved an impressive three-year average growth of 481 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 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.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. president and editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
