Inc. Ranks Accelerate Among Top 30% of Fastest-Growing Companies

August 18, 2021

Inc. magazine has revealed that Accelerate is No. 1,429 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. 

Accelerate Resources is a technology and data-driven energy company that specializes in the pursuit of fractional working interests and minerals in the core of the Permian Basin using a climate-conscious approach.

“We are honored to rank among the top third of U.S. businesses experiencing rapid growth,” said Brennan Potts, Founder & CEO of Accelerate Resources. “While 2020 was a tough year for our industry, we had our best year – and I credit our team and our differentiated platform for our success.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543%, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

Methodology
Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to three decimal places. There was one tie on this year’s Inc. 5000.  Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
