CHICAGO, IL (August 15, 2023) – The Planet Group, a portfolio company of Odyssey Investment Partners and a leading provider of outsourced human capital, advisory and consulting services for the Technology, Diversified Energy, Professional Services and Digital Marketing sectors, announced today that it has been included on the 2023 Inc. 5000 list, a ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is the third consecutive year that The Planet Group has achieved this recognition.
The 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022.
The companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising cost of capital and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,238 percent.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000 can be found at inc.com/inc5000.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “To make the Inc. 5000 – with the fast growth that requires – is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
