Inc. magazine today revealed that Interlink Cloud Advisors is No. 4154 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, 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 businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Huge kudos go to the entire Interlink team for not only growing our firm during the past few years and doing so in a way that we are better situated to deliver value to our clients than ever before,” says Interlink’s President, Matt Scherocman. “We couldn’t be prouder of our team and are excited to share this success with them and our deeply valued clients. Microsoft has been a tremendous growth partner with us, and we will see that continue!”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
This past July marked Interlink’s official 8-year anniversary – since then, Interlink has seen incredible growth not only in sales but as a company overall. What began as a small startup with a two-person team, has now grown into a team of more than 30 experienced and hard-working employees. This past June, Interlink moved into a new, much larger office space that will allow for additional growth in years to come.
Interlink has seen growth every step of the way of this journey that began in 2011. Focusing on providing exceptional support and solutions around Microsoft-based technologies, we educate and assist clients through their implementations and with improving their security posture. We coach our clients through the complexities of Microsoft, including their licensing rules, bundled offerings, incentives, and funding programs. Over the years, we have continued to add new services and offerings to further help our clients – including managed services and support options as well as customer immersion experiences and adoption and change management. What sets apart is the way we educate and guide our clients, so they can avoid overpaying for licensing or purchasing unneeded technologies. Interlink is honored to be featured in the Inc. 5000 this year and look forward to even more growth in the future.
The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
