National Funding Appears on the Inc. 5000 List Five Times in a Row

National Funding makes Inc. magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000 list five consecutive years reporting 185% growth from 2013 – 2016 for the new 2017 list.SAN DIEGO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–National Funding, one of the country’s leading financial technology companies for small and medium-sized businesses, ranked as one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies on two prestigious lists. In July, the San Diego Business Journal named National Funding its No. 62 fastest growing San Diego company with 94% growth from 2014 – 2016. In August, Inc. magazine ranked the financial services company No. 2030 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 with 185% growth from 2013 – 2016.

This is National Funding’s fifth appearance on the Inc. 5000 list (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017). According to Inc., with 7 million active private businesses in the country (those with at least one employee), making the Inc. 5000 list is quite an achievement. Not all who make it get to repeat. Over 36 years, only 7% have made it five times on the list.

“It’s a distinct honor to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 for five consecutive years”

The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small- and mid-sized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.”The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc.
