History in the Making: DemandScience Named to the Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies for 10th Consecutive Year

Posted on

DANVERS, MA, September 19, 2023 – DemandScience, a leading AI-powered B2B demand generation company that accelerates sales pipeline growth for marketing and sales organizations across the globe, today announced the company has been named to the Inc. 5000 for 10th consecutive year. DemandScience is only the 143rd company in history to make the premier list of the fastest-growing private companies in America ten times.

“When we founded DemandScience in 2012, we knew B2B companies were ready for a fresh approach that brought marketing and science together to tackle their complex demand gen problems. Two years later we made the Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest-growing companies in the market and the world – and we haven’t looked back. And now, as pioneers in integrating AI into the demand generation industry, our success will help us revolutionize and lead the charge,” said Barry Harrigan, co-founder of DemandScience.

With a three-year revenue growth of 214% DemandScience is ranked #2,546 on this year’s list. The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and a tight labor market. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

“DemandScience is in rare territory, and we have two groups to thank for our historic success – our customers and our team members,” said Peter Cannone, Chair and CEO of DemandScience. “We are a trusted partner for more than 1,500 global B2B companies, working collaboratively to help solve their demand generation challenges and help them exceed their business goals. Their success has fueled our growth and our ability to develop differentiated and innovative solutions for pipeline growth, accurate B2B data, data protection, intelligence, and insights.”

“We also have an incredibly talented team around the world that provides B2B marketing and sales organizations with solutions that deliver the ROI our customers need, the results they want, and the experiences they deserve. Every member of our team has been part of this remarkable achievement. Their collaborative spirit, innovative thinking, and deep commitment to excellence is also driving DemandScience’s future and our work to harness the full power of AI to benefit our customers,” added Cannone.

DemandScience has also won numerous awards for its commitment to work-life balance, including being Great Place To Work Certified in 2023 and 2022, earning a #5 ranking on Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces in Advertising & Marketing™ last fall, and being named a Best Place to Work by the Boston Business Journal.

“Being simultaneously recognized for our business success as a ten-time member of the Inc. 5000 and as a great place to work is welcome validation of our industry leadership, and of DemandScience’s commitment to accelerating and simplifying pipeline growth and revenue for the largest global enterprise organizations through our innovative AI-powered demand generation solutions,” explained Harrigan.
