WASHINGTON, D.C., August 16, 2022 — Upside, a retail technology company, today announced it ranked #308 on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.
“The remarkable growth we’ve achieved in the last three years can be attributed to the fact that our product is a win-win-win for users, businesses and Upside,” Upside co-founder and CEO Alex Kinnier explained. “And with inflation at a 40-year high, businesses are looking for new ways to grow profitably, while consumers are looking for ways to gain more purchasing power on the things they need. We’re proud to help.”
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. The top 500 companies on the Inc. 5000 are featured in Inc. magazine’s September issue.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
