Durham-based digital advertising automation leader joins the 4% of companies who make prestigious list of America’s fastest growing private companies five times
Adwerx, a leading provider of hyperlocal, personalized, and custom automated advertising solutions, announced recognition for the 5th year in a row as one of the Inc. 5000 “Fastest Growing Companies in America”, the most prestigious ranking of private companies in North America. Making the list gets harder every year as a company’s revenue base grows, and only 4% of companies who make the Inc 5000 do it 5 times. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia are some of the notable alumni who gained exposure on Inc. 5000.
“I’m still amazed by what our team is able to accomplish, and receiving this award for the fifth year in a row is a true testament to their talent and dedication,” said Jed Carlson, CEO at Adwerx. “Last year was one of the most challenging on record, considering all the changes to our personal and professional lives caused by the pandemic, and yet every team was able to produce extraordinary results.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000 companies named, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, 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.”
Beginning operations in 2013, Adwerx was founded with the concept of leveling the playing field for businesses of all sizes through scalable, automated digital advertising. The company’s role as a leading technology company was established in 2017 when they launched their Advertising Automation Platform, originally designed to serve the needs of the real estate industry through automated ads for new home listings.
Building off their tremendous success in real estate, Adwerx set sights on the mortgage, financial services, and franchise verticals. Now, just four years later, Adwerx has developed a full service, hyperlocal, custom targeted enterprise solution that provides brand-locked advertising across social media, streaming TV and the web, for any business that wants to get their producers in front of their targeted audiences.
