AuctusIQ ranks among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Inc 5000

Lincoln, NE, August 17, 2023 – AuctusIQ ranks number 2148 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, a list curated annually by Inc. of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household brands gained their first national exposure on the Inc. 5000.

Among the top 5000 companies this year, the median three-year revenue growth rate surged to a remarkable 2,238 percent. Collectively, the Inc. 5000 companies have contributed 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years. AuctusIQ, in particular, secured a ranking of 2148 for its inaugural year on the listing by achieving an impressive growth rate. The growth is attributed to AuctusIQ’s software-based performance assessments and “Smart Growth” sales performance platform, which supports mid to large-size business-to-business sales teams to better assess their skills and improve performance.

Troy Kanter, CEO of AuctusIQ, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “Being recognized on the Inc 5000 list is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team. We are proud to be among the fastest-growing private companies in America and will continue to innovate as we help clients improve sales performance.”
