LeagueApps Rebounds from the Effects of Covid to Be Listed as a 2022 Inc. 5000 Company
August 23, 2022
Today, Inc. revealed that LeagueApps is No. 3436 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.
“The last two and a half years have been challenging for all of us, but not more than the youth sports industry. But the resilience of the industry helped it bounce back—and so did we,” says Brian Litvack, LeagueApps CEO and co-founder. “Now that they are back on the fields and on the courts, youth sports organizations have other things to worry about: disruption, innovation, societal changes, and scaling with purpose. We are here to help them operate, serve their communities, and win on and off the field.”
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. And from a LeagueApps perspective, revenue was down 95% in April 2020, $40M of transactions were refunded, and all fees were returned to customers, which is a testament to how far the organization has come since then.
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.”
