Boise, Idaho, August 29, 2022 — For the third year in a row now, Inspire Impact Group, parent company of faith-based investing industry leader, Inspire Investing, has made the Inc. 5000 list – the most prestigious ranking of America’s fastest-growing private companies. For 2022, Inspire came in at number 1,069 overall and 77th out of 325 in the financial services industry, posting a 609% three-year revenue growth figure from 2018 to 2021. This growth places Inspire in the top quartile of all who made it on the highly publicized list and among an even more exclusive list of companies making the list three years in a row.
“Making the cut for the Inc. 5000 is a major accomplishment and all glory to God for the rapid growth we continue to experience placing us on the list three years in a row now,” said Robert Netzly, CEO of Inspire. “Every recognition like this is a testament to the momentum of the biblically responsible investing movement that is exploding across the globe. God is doing a mighty work in the financial industry.”
Honorees on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 230 percent and added more than 1.18 million jobs over the past three years.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
