Bongo Makes Inc. 5000 List for Third Consecutive Year
Bongo Ranks No. 609 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 List
LOVELAND, Colo. — Bongo was ranked No. 609 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, Inc. magazine announced this week. This was the third consecutive year Bongo made the list, which recognizes the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“Bongo’s video assessment solution helps individuals build the foundational skills they need to become lifelong learners, and we aim to promote that same kind of growth mindset within our team,” said Josh Kamrath, Bongo’s CEO. “Making this list for a third year in a row is a wonderful achievement, but it’s just another positive step along the path of continuous improvement.”
Bongo finished with a three-year growth rate of 733 percent, which placed it 17th among Colorado companies and 73rd among software companies. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth rate of 454 percent, while its aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018. Based out of Loveland, Colo., Bongo finished No. 909 on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list and was No. 379 in 2017.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said 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.”
