Science and Medicine Group Again Named to Inc. Magazine’s List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

ARLINGTON, Va.Aug. 13, 2020 / — Inc. magazine today revealed that Science and Medicine Group was again named to its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Science and Medicine Group has continued to flourish despite the challenges of the novel coronavirus and the resulting economic slowdown,” said Craig Overpeck, Chief Executive Officer. “Our life science, diagnostic and medical imaging customers are on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19 and we’re supporting them by making key data available so they can monitor laboratory and imaging facility status and focus their resources on where they are needed most. Our customer-centric approach by our entire staff and shared passion with our customers is driving our growth.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

Science and Medicine Group, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, is an integrated business information and media firm serving clients in the life science, diagnostic, medical imaging and dental industries. Business information products and services include hundreds of market reports, databases of installed diagnostic and imaging instruments, a widely-read executive newsletter, and a custom research and data analysis team to help clients grow their business. Science and Medicine Group moved up 7 spots to be ranked 17th among Media Companies due to its highly targeted, digital audiences comprised of scientists, radiologists, clinical lab professionals, and dentists.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
