The Inc. annual 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent, small, and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the award. Although MCT did not make the list in 2020, the company did make the Inc. 5000 list from 2011 to 2019.
“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.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been highly competitive within their respective markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000 companies honored in 2021, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543%, and median revenue reached $11.1M. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“2020 was hard on all of us, but I am proud that we, at MCT, was able to pull together as a team to exceed my expectations,” said Curtis Richins, President of MCT. “It really does take a village to accomplish the vision of being the best capital markets partner in the business, and this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all our employees.”

Inc. 5000 Methodology:
Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to three decimal places. There was one tie on this year’s Inc. 5000. 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 https://www.inc.com/inc5000.
