Coming in at 4,608, TrendyMinds has been ranked for the fourth consecutive year on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
A huge part of this accomplishment goes out to our clients, who we consider the best partners in the business. “As we continue to grow, we have to keep adapting so that we can serve our clients better from day to day, month to month, year to year,” said Trevor Yager, President & CEO of TrendyMinds. “We’re honored to be part of such a distinct list of companies, but we also realize we have to find ways to become better service providers every day.”
Adding new clients like Project Lead The Way, Kappa Alpha Theta, On-Time Mixers and Envysion—the agency’s first Denver-based tech client—has pushed TrendyMinds further into the education, e-commerce and tech industries and primed the company for future growth.
According to Inc.com, “Companies are ranked according to the percentage growth of their annual revenue over a three-year period.” Inc. requests revenue reporting for 2012 and 2015, which shows a three-year growth period. To be eligible for the Inc. 5000, companies must follow specific criteria, so TrendyMinds must:
Have generated revenue by March 31, 2012;
Have generated at least $100,000 in revenue in 2012;
Have generated at least $2 million in revenue in 2015;
Be a privately held, for-profit company; based in the U.S., and independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company).
As TrendyMinds’ revenue has increased, sustaining a spot on the Inc. 5000 has become more challenging, especially since a static percentage growth in revenue translates to increasingly larger jumps in dollar amount year over year.
