SAN DIEGO – August 15, 2023 / PR Newswire /– Inc. revealed today that Wildfire Systems Inc., an innovative financial technology platform that powers reward programs, shopping companions, and content monetization, ranks No. 60 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.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S.,” said Jordan Glazier, CEO of Wildfire. “Making the top 2% of the Inc. 5000 is a testament to our team’s passion, hard work, and commitment to our clients’ success. Our rapid growth is also a result of our collaborative strategic partnerships and incredible support from our investors. With the continuing expansion of our white label rewards platform and the recent launch of RevenueEngine, we’re excited to continue the momentum and take Wildfire’s growth to the next level.”
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.
