Universal Windows Direct has reached multiple milestones over the last year. It’s no secret that we are undergoing rapid growth and having tons of fun along the way. While we were hard at work, we received the news that we are number 870 on Inc.’s 5000! Wow!
What is Inc. 5000?
Inc. 5000 is an annual list that includes the fastest-growing companies in America. Companies belonging to nearly any industry are found on this list ranging from food to home improvement. The list was founded in 1979, making this the 40th year of Inc.’s 5000 publishing. It’s truly an honor!
There are some other major honorees you might recognize from Inc. 5000. Ever hear of Microsoft? Domino’s Pizza? Yelp? LinkedIn? These companies were also listed on Inc. 5000 at one point of time.
Making it on Inc. 5000 is a reason to celebrate, but we have another reason for celebration in mind—you!
