Inc. magazine revealed that Stukent ranked on its annual Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
The Inc. 5000 recognizes the industry innovators who are rapidly growing within their respective spaces. This year, Stukent ranked No. 764 overall, while ranking No. 13 in the Education category and tenth in the state of Idaho.
“Being recognized as an Inc. 5000 company for the second year in a row is nice payday,” said Stuart Draper, founder and CEO of Stukent. “The biggest payday for me is the individual customers who write to say their lives and careers are better off because of what Stukent helped them learn.”
“From the very beginning, I knew that our core focus had to be set on Helping Educators, Help Students, Help the World,” said Draper. “Your support has pushed us to always grow and improve, and you’re the reason we’ve found success. Thank you.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their respective markets, but this year’s list shows staggering growth compared to prior years. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
