Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
CHICAGO - Aug. 19, 2021 - PRLog -- This week, Inc. magazine revealed that Visionary Optics is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies comparing revenue between 2017 and 2020. 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.

"It is an honor to be ranked as one of the 2021 Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private companies," said Donald Sanders, M.D., Ph.D., President & CEO of Visionary Optics. "As a leader in the scleral lens industry, we are proud to receive this recognition and continue to provide innovative solutions and expert care to our customers. Visionary Optics goes beyond lens designs, and this achievement would not be possible without our highly motivated team and fantastic customers. Congratulations to everyone involved—we are looking forward to the future of the company."

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, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies 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," says 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."
