2019 Inc. 5000 List: 100+ San Diego companies make the ranks
Aug 19, 2019 - Nickie Peña
Inc. Magazine recently published its annual guide to the 5,000 fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S., otherwise famously known as the Inc. 5000 list. It came to no one’s surprise (at least not ours) that San Diego garnered a solid handful of companies among this year’s ranks…more than 100 in our region.
As an extra-special bonus to complement this year’s notable rankings, Inc. Magazine also created a list of the top 10 hottest startup cities in America. San Diego came in at no. 4, giving us more proof that San Diego is a great place to live, work, and grow your own business (and have a really good time doing it). Check out what Inc. had to say:
“With 24 incubators and accelerator programs, along with strong talent pipelines from the University of California, San Diego, and nearby military bases, the city is a sanctuary for startups.”
As much as we’d love to highlight all 110 San Diego companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000, here are just a few from various industries in our region that made this year’s list:
