Zipline Appears on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies — the Inc. 5000

Zipline ranks No. 828 on the 2021 Inc. 5000, with three-year revenue growth of 592%


Zipline, the operations platform for distributed teams, announced today its rank as No. 828 on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses. 

“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.,” said Melissa Wong, CEO and Co-Founder of Zipline. “This has been a challenging year for retailers and other brands with field teams. They’ve had to navigate constantly changing in-store safety protocols, and record rates of retail workers leaving the workforce, uncovering a much stronger need for better communication and execution solutions. Zipline has continued to grow thanks to the hard work and dedication of our team and I’m extremely proud of our company and look forward to continuing this momentum.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 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 The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.

“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.”
