Blue Signal Ranks No. 3341 on the 2023 Inc. 5000

For the 3rd Time, Blue Signal Makes the Inc. 5000, at No. 3341 in 2023, With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 151% Percent

Last week, Inc. revealed that Blue Signal Search ranks No. 3341 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.  

“I am so proud of our team for making the Inc. 5000 for the third time. This is a testament to their hard work and dedication. When I started Blue Signal, I had a vision of creating a company that would make a true difference in the world and change lives for the better. I am grateful to our team for helping make that vision a reality. We are committed to continued growth and innovation, and I am excited to see what the future holds." – Matt Walsh, CEO, Blue Signal Search” 

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
