Three BIP Ventures Portfolio Companies Make the 2021 Inc. 5000


We're excited to announce that three BIP Ventures portfolio companies have ranked in this year's Inc. 5000 list of America's fastest-growing private companies. These companies include:  

  • AchieveIt (named to the list for fifth consecutive year)
  • LeaseQuery (listed in the top six percent of the list at #266)
  • Tricentis (named to the list for second consecutive year)

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year's list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020's unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000 listed, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, companies on this year's list added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.    

"The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled," said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. "Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we've lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people."    

At BIP Ventures, we're honored to work closely with the entrepreneurs in our portfolio companies to help fuel results and make their vision a reality.    

"We're proud of our portfolio companies and their achievements," said Mark Buffington, Managing Partner of BIP Ventures. "Being recognized by Inc. is a significant milestone, and we're pleased to work alongside these companies and be a part of their success. We look forward to seeing even more of our portfolio companies on Inc.'s lists in the future."
