The 2017 Inc. 5000 list is the most competitive crop in the list’s history; with the average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.
“This year’s growth within our company has been astronomical, and we continue to focus on attracting top talent to garner internal growth, incorporating innovative tactics to surpass prior objectives, and successfully trailblazing the industry’s leading proprietary curriculum,” added Andrew Alfano, Chief Operating Officer of The Learning Experience.
