Blast Continues to Climb the Inc. 5000 List
ROSEVILLE, CA (September 22, 2021) — Blast Analytics, a strategic analytics consultancy supporting leaders to EVOLVE their organizations, has been ranked among Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies for the third consecutive year. With an 87% three-year revenue growth rate, Blast moved up 60 spots on the prestigious list.
The 2021 Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at top companies within the U.S. economy’s most dynamic segment: independent small businesses. Specifically, Blast ranked #3,772 on the list, up from 3,832 in 2020 and 3,963 in 2019. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Blast is among many well-known companies that gained their first national exposure on this list, including Intuit, Microsoft, Patagonia, Under Armour, Zappos, and other notable Inc. 5000 alumni.
“I am exceptionally proud of our company’s inclusion and advancement on the Inc. 5000, particularly given the various challenges this past year has presented all of us,” said Kayden Kelly, Founder and CEO of Blast. “The core of our success is our people, and this recognition underscores their talent, resiliency, and commitment to delivering exceptional results for our clients and company. Building on our track record of continuous growth, I’m extremely optimistic about our future and impact on the increasingly digital economy, specifically helping clients optimize their digital experiences with data-driven solutions.”
Founded in 1999, Blast now has more than 80 teammates passionate about making their mark. Earlier this year, Blast was also designated a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company for the third year in a row.
“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.”
