Inc. magazine named BoardVitals at number 251 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. BoardVitals has grown by 1,947.6% since 2014 while companies that made the 2018 Inc. 5000 list, on average, have grown sixfold over the three-year period. The 2018 Inc. 5000 was unveiled online at Inc.com and the top 500 companies will be featured in the September issue of Inc.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American 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 names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 500.
“Making the Inc. 500 is one of those things that only happens once and I couldn’t be more proud of everyone that has helped us get here,” said Dan Lambert, Co-Founder and CEO of BoardVitals. “Being part of this company has been an incredible opportunity and I’m proud that we are able to impact the lives of doctors and nurses across the globe.”
