WASHINGTON, DC, August 15, 2023 – Inc. recognized Data Society as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US when it revealed its annual Inc. 5000 list today, marking the third year the Washington, DC-based data science training enterprise has merited a spot on the coveted list. Data Society came in at No. 4214 and earned additional distinctions by ranking No. 31 among the fastest-growing companies in the District of Columbia and No. 78 among the fastest-growing education companies in the US. Inc.’s 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 are thrilled that we are once again in the company of the inspiring ventures that have made the Inc. 5000 list,” says Data Society CEO and Co-founder Merav Yuravlivker. “This recognition underscores the importance of the mission we serve: to help professionals use data better to solve tough challenges and make better decisions.”
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.
For complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, location, and other criteria, go to www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
Yuravlivker credits Data Society’s continued growth to the resilience and responsiveness of the company’s workforce. “Our success reflects the dedication and expertise of our innovative team, which thrives when presented with new challenges and always focuses on providing the highest quality training programs and solutions services to our clients,” she says.
