We made the list! 2020 Inc. 5000

For the 6th Time, 9Gauge Partners Appears on the Inc. 5000

AUSTIN, Texas – August 12, 2020 —  Inc. magazine today revealed that 9Gauge Partners, LLC, is in the top 2% of companies to make the annual Inc. 5000 list six years in a row. The most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, the list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“We are honored to be on this list 6 years running – it is a reflection of our team’s passion for helping our clients accelerate their vision”, said Brian White, Founding Partner of 9Gauge Partners.  “We genuinely enjoy partnering with clients in a solution-oriented model where we align our services to the clients’ strategic goals.  The credit for this accomplishment goes to our 9Gaugers, who deliver exceptional client experiences through relationships, trust, and teamwork.   My partners and I have enjoyed the journey thus far, and the best is yet to come.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been competitive within their markets, but they also represent staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500% and a median rate of 165%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years. 

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
