Ranks No. 1549 on the 2015 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 264%
August 12, 2015 – Inc. magazine ranked Impact Makers No. 1549 on its Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
Impact Makers’ rank is based on three-year sales growth of 264%. This is the fourth consecutive year that Impact Makers has made the list. In 2014, the company ranked 463rd with 1,024% growth. In 2013, the ranking was 514th with 887% growth and in 2012, 360th with 1,030% growth. This growth is especially significant due to the company’s social entrepreneurship model: Impact Makers is a for profit company that has gifted its ownership to the community and contributes 100% of its net profits to charities over the life of the company.
“Impact Makers is honored to be named to the Inc. 5000 for the fourth year,” says CEO and founder Michael Pirron. “I am especially proud that we have for many years been nationally recognized for our social impact model, but by pure capitalist metrics as well we have been a very successful firm. This further proves that social enterprise is an extremely viable business model.”
A founding Certified B Corporation, Impact Makers also was honored for the third year in a row as a ‘Best for the World’ company by the nonprofit B Lab, for creating most overall positive social and environmental impact.
“2015 is proving to be quite the year. In April, Impact Makers gave the company away! We gifted complete ownership to two local nonprofit foundations, preserving and growing our philanthropic mission,” says Pirron.
The company was founded in 2006 in Richmond, Virginia. Virginia is the 5th fastest growing state with 278 companies on the Inc. 5000.
Impact Makers is a management and technology consulting company, providing Management and IT Consulting, Program and Project Management, Digital Services, Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) and Healthcare Solutions.
