BOSTON, September 15, 2015 – For the sixth consecutive year, Mentoring Minds, the national publisher of critical thinking-focused educational resources for K–12, was named to Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“As a privately held company, Mentoring Minds is thrilled to be included on the list that launched companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn and Zillow,” said Robert Bush, CEO Mentoring Minds. “Our ranking on this exclusive list for the sixth year in a row reflects the hard work and dedication of our team and its commitment to providing resources that help students develop critical thinking skills that will help them succeed in school, college and life.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2011 to 2014. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2011. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2014.
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18 to September 22), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
