Making the 2022 list of the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies is an honor for Brkthru. At number 1,843, Brkthru is just about in the top third of the rankings.
What we are most proud of, and most relevant to our clients and employees, is our ranking at #150 in the Advertising and Marketing category (out of 503 honorees, and in an industry of more than 90,000 advertising firms).
As Co-Founder & Managing Director Andrew Sklerov said, “Making the Inc. 5000 list is more meaningful because it’s proof the business model on which we founded Brkthru in 2017 works, and our clients responded by partnering with Brkthru.”
The Inc. 5000 is an annual look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000, so we’re in great company.
“If you said when we started Brkthru that in five years we would be more than 150 employees and reach this revenue, I would not have been surprised,” said Jeff Hastedt, Co-Founder and Managing Director. “I am surprised that we accomplished this in just five years. And we owe this accomplishment to our dedicated and hard-working team members, and to our clients who trust us to care for their digital media campaigns.“
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2021. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million.
