Kansas City, MO, March 23, 2021 – Inc. magazine has revealed that Amply Media is No.138 on its 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals: Midwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Midwest economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“Everyone here at Amply Media is thrilled to be back on the Inc. 5000 Midwest list,” said CEO Ryan Schaar. “Last year we got a lot of press as one of the fastest-growing companies here in the Midwest and nationally as well, and we’ve just kept growing. Our team and our culture continue to be the driving force behind our success and we’re all very excited to see what comes next.”
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the 12 Midwest states. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 199 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 43,000 people and added more than $11 billion to the Midwest economy. Companies based in the Chicago, Detroit, and Cincinnati areas brought in the highest revenue overall.
