Blast Makes Inc. 5000 List — Again!
Company jumps 131 spots on annual list of fastest-growing private companies with 94% growth rate.
ROCKLIN, CA (August 27, 2020) — Blast Analytics, a strategic analytics consultancy supporting leaders to EVOLVE their organizations, has once again been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000. With a 94% three-year revenue growth rate, compared to 82% for its 2019 ranking, Blast moved up 131 spots on the prestigious ranking of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
The 2020 Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at top companies within the U.S. economy’s most dynamic segment: independent small businesses. Specifically, Blast ranked #3,832 on the list, up from 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 Clif Bar, Intuit, Microsoft, Oracle, Patagonia, Under Armour, Zappos, and other notable Inc. 5000 alumni.
“Our recognition as one of America’s fastest-growing companies underscores our deep commitment to our teammates, our clients, and our industry,” said Kayden Kelly, Founder and CEO of Blast. “Building on our Make Your Mark purpose and culture of evolution, we’re driven to consistently improve across all facets of our organization and remain a leader in analytics consulting. We’ll continue to fulfill our strategic vision of optimizing customer experience to support our clients’ digital transformation and drive their desired business outcomes.”
Founded in 1999, Blast now has over 60 teammates passionate about making their mark. Earlier this year, Blast was also designated a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company for the second year in a row.
“For decades, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America, and this year’s set of winners places the bar very high indeed,” said Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-Chief, Inc. Media. “Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2016. During a stretch when the economy grew just 15 percent, that’s a result most businesses could only dream of.”
