“We’re so honored to be chosen for the Inc. 5000 list, and it being our fifth year included, we couldn’t be happier.” - Devon Dickinson, Verified First’s CEO

The Inc. 5000 list is a big deal to us and not just because of bragging rights. In fact, we really don’t build our solution(s) for awards — we do it all for our clients. However, this award has many layers, which makes celebrating it even sweeter! It also begs the question “why does the Inc 5000 matter?” Let’s uncover the details to understand why being on the Inc. 5000 list is such an honor that makes us a proud and reliable background screening and HR technology provider. 

What is the Inc. 5000 List?

The Inc. 5000 list stems from Inc. media property that publishes six annual print issues and daily articles and videos on business industry news, trends, and emerging entrepreneurs. Every year, Inc. considers the growth rate of private companies in America and selects 5,000 of the fastest-growing companies out there. A company on the list is one that’s committed to doing business right. Out of the hundreds of thousands of American private companies, these companies are the fastest growing in the market. Additionally, Inc 5000 honoree shares a pedigree with highly recognized private companies such as Zappos, Pandora, and Oracle.

Why does it matter?

With big names such as those previously mentioned companies, it’s easy to identify the Inc. 5000 list as a big deal. Being on the list means that Verified First is rising through the ranks of notable tech and screening software companies. It’s a badge of honor we wear with pride that credits our entrepreneurship and business ventures in 2021.
