You may know us for publishing Inc. Magazine, which for more than 30 years has been the premier print publication for entrepreneurs and business owners. In 1982, we introduced the Inc. 500, which celebrates the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. Then in 2007, we expanded the list to the Inc. 5000 in order to help readers get a broader and deeper understanding of the entrepreneurial landscape, as well as recognize a larger percentage of this important and growing market segment.
We also host several Inc. Events, including the Inc. 500|5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony, which celebrates the Inc. 500|5000 on an annual basis and allows honorees, alumni and other growth-minded entrepreneurs to learn and network with each other. The event also offers educational sessions, rousing keynotes, important networking, and unforgettable special events.
In 1996, we launched Inc.com, where you can access the current online issue of Inc. Magazine as well as an archive of our back issues.
