542: Our New Favorite Number

We’re thrilled to announce that Apprentice has made the 2022 Inc. 5000 list, ranking #542 out of 5,000! We’re proud to be included among the most successful and fastest growing privately run companies in America.

We’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our incredible team and our devoted clients who helped us reach this shared achievement. It truly takes a village, and we couldn’t have done it without you.


What’s the Inc. 5000?

The Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent businesses. 

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”

— Scott Omelianuk, Inc. Editor in Chief

Starting in 1982, Inc. has cataloged America’s most successful privately held organizations in their annual Inc. 5000 list. To calculate their list, they rank companies by revenue growth of over a three-year period. Honorees include household staples such as Microsoft, Pandora, and Under Armour.


The Power of Perseverance: Our Inc. 5000 Recognition
