Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of
America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
“We are very pleased to once again be recognized by Inc. magazine on its annual Inc. 5000 list,” said Anurag Pal, CEO of Escalon. “Certainly, this speaks volumes about our efforts as a business and the fact that we are on a growth tregecetory that shows our efforts to become the leader in Essential Business Services are paying off.”
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 www.inc.com/inc5000. 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,” said 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.”
As the leader in the Essential Business Services category, Escalon has established itself as an innovator in helping small businesses, mid-sized businesses, and startups address one of their biggest challenges -- – making sure back-office operations, such as accounting, HR, payroll, recruiting and taxes, get done and done right.

And Done.” assures customers that they can count on Escalon to get the job done when it comes to Essential Business Services.
