MOD Mission Critical (MOD) has announced that it has been ranked number 216 on Inc. Magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. In addition, MOD was ranked number 20 in IT services as well as top five in Colorado.

The annual Inc. 5000 list represents the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: Independent small businesses. This year, MOD has earned a coveted space among the top 500 fastest-growing private companies alongside powerhouse organizations such as Square, Dollar Shave Club, ipsy, and Yeti Cooler.

“At MOD it’s important for us to go where our customers are as well as where they need to be, and we honor this commitment with consistent domestic and international growth throughout strategic markets around the world,” comments Mike Hollander, co-founder and CEO of MOD Mission Critical. “We are deeply honored to be counted among the top 500 fastest-growing private companies in America as recognized by  Inc., and believe that this ranking clearly demonstrates our dedication to providing high-quality IT and colocation services and solutions where they’re needed most.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on this year’s list achieved stunning three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of theInc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria can be found online.

“The  Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief, Inc. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great — usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 18-20 in San Antonio. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations including best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
