Drive Named #284 on Inc 500 List of Fastest Growing Companies in America

Inc Magazine released its list of America’s fastest growing privately owned companies, and we were proud to make the cut at #284, with more than 1,500% growth in the last three years!  We were honored amongst some pretty exciting brands, including Untapped, Halo Top Creamery, and Carvana.  Not only did Drive Social Media secure a spot in the top 300, but we ranked #27 in advertising and marketing, and #7 in the state of Missouri.

This is our first time on the Inc. 500 list, which is the top-tier of the Inc. 5000, whose rankings are decided by the rate of revenue growth over a three-year span. The list recognizes innovative leaders in business nationwide, and we are all incredibly proud of this accomplishment.

We are in good company among other industry giants including Zappos, Microsoft and GoPro and many other Inc. 500 alumni who have gone on to be household names.

Being recognized as a nationwide industry leader is more than just an honor, it’s truly humbling. We have come a long way in our short 5 years of existence, and to our Operating Partner, and fearless leader, Josh Sample, the sky’s the limit!

“No one makes this list without doing something really great, usually from scratch,” he said. “As every founder knows, this is one the hardest things to do in business. I am incredibly humbled and honored to work with such a talented team of individuals who have made Drive what it is today.”

He also says he owes our success to our talented team, as well as our Partners, many of whom have been with us since day one.

“I am incredibly proud of my team for this achievement,” he said. “They truly understand the importance of not only the technical skills needed for this industry but also the significance in providing our partners with the level of service they deserve.”

We hope to continuously build on this honor, and optimize our approach to a paid social strategy that truly helps show each and every one of our partners a clear return on the hard-earned money they spend with us!

Thank you again to our team and all of our partners, we couldn’t do it with you!
