Leap Ranks No. 21 on Inc. Magazine’s List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the D.C. Metro Region
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 18, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Leap is ranked No. 21 on its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: D.C. Metro list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Washington, D.C., area-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the D.C. area economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing small businesses in the D.C. area on the Inc. 5000 Regionals D.C. Metro list,” said Leap CEO, Patrick Fingles. “From the beginning, Leap was designed to challenge the outdated contractor sales model. We created a new standard that helps contractors quickly and easily increase business using the digital approach that homeowners expect. This recognition affirms our market-wide adoption and ability to scale to meet growing demand.”
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the Washington, D.C., region. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 211% and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 120,000 people and added nearly $15 billion to the D.C. area economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Baltimore, Maryland, the Washington, D.C. area, and Richmond, Virginia—brought in the highest revenue overall.
