NEW YORK, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Jonas Paul Eyewear is No. 3038 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“To have made the Inc. 5000 list one time was a true honor. To have made the list four years in a row is even more humbling. What started as a two person operation with my wife, Laura, and I back in 2013 has grown to a kids glasses business that we are incredibly proud of," stated co-founder and CEO, Ben Harrison. "We, alongside our team, have put blood, sweat, and tears into Jonas Paul Eyewear, and it’s remarkable to see how it has grown and really began to flourish these past nine short years. This growth hasn’t come without challenges, as with any business, but we can’t help but look back and recognize how those challenges have turned into opportunities for growth and pushed us to get where we are today.”
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
