Inc 5000 2016: BombBomb Ranks #665

Several months ago, BombBomb submitted some company information and revenue numbers to Inc, which celebrates what they call “the superheroes of the U.S. economy” – the fastest-growing private companies.

Several weeks ago, we received an email confirming that we’d made the Inc 5000.

A few days ago, we received a packet with a letter and our ranking.

Yesterday, Inc released the full list online.

Inc ranks companies based on 3-year revenue growth. At 590% growth, we landed just outside the Inc 500, who get inclusion in the print edition.

It’s a nice milestone for the entire BombBomb team, who’ve been at it since 2006. Yes, we’ll be 10 years old at the end of this year.

As with all “overnight successes,” any “overnight” perception here is mythical and undervalues the years of dedication and persistence of our co-founders and their supporters.

These supporters, of course, include you – our early customers and people who’ve since joined this community by changing the way they’re growing their businesses.

Together, we’re a community of people committed to connecting and communicating with people in a more personal and human way – with face to face communication and smarter follow up.


Inc 5000 2016: Thank You

Per the introduction to the Inc 5000, “Roughly 50 percent of all startups fail within their first 5 years. Many others struggle to stay afloat, let alone grow.”

To enjoy such rapid growth (especially without venture capital), BombBomb had to solve real problems in an efficient way, find a market fit, and innovate around the solutions.


Thank you to each of you who saw the value and potential in how we’ve approached that.


Thank you for putting our toolset and training to use to solve real problems and capitalize on real opportunities every day.


Among the challenges and opportunities …

  • You need to build relationships to grow your business.
  • You need more replies and responses to your emails.
  • You need to save time in your inbox.
  • You need to build trust and rapport.
  • You need people to feel like they know you before they ever meet you.
  • You need to convert leads, recruit talent, and generate referrals.
  • You need to differentiate yourself against competitors.
  • You need to follow up with the right people at the right time.
  • You need to get face to face with more people more often.


Here are some videos about why and how you and your peers use BombBomb.

To hear things like “you’ve transformed my business” and “I can’t imagine my business without BombBomb” is more satisfying than any award or ranking.

So, this year’s Inc 5000 appearance, a debut at #665, is your achievement, as much as it is ours.

Thank you for making us part of how you’re winning more opportunities every day! It’s a privilege.
