J3 ranks among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Inc. revealed today that J3 Consulting has joined the Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. 

J3 Consulting is ranked #109 in government services, #264 in Virginia, and #289 in the region of DC-MD-VA-WV, which includes Washington, Arlington, Alexandria in DC. 

“Today marks a remarkable milestone for J3 Consulting as we celebrate our inclusion in the esteemed Inc. 5000 list,” said J3 Consulting President & CEO Jeannie Jones-Ledford. “We are thrilled to stand alongside some of the most dynamic and forward-thinking companies that are shaping the future of our economy. Navigating challenges, seizing opportunities, and fostering innovation have been the cornerstones of our journey. This achievement fuels our commitment to continue providing cutting-edge consulting services that drive success for our clients, empower our communities, and inspire growth on a national scale.”

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years. 

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

More about Inc. and the Inc. 5000  Methodology 

Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.
