Intellum Ranks on the 2021 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Leading customer education platform ranks No. 2548 on Inc. Magazine’s annual list, boasting 165% revenue growth to secure prominent listing

Intellum, the #1 customer, partner, and employee education platform, was recognized for the first time on Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, one of the most prestigious rankings of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. 

Intellum provides clients with an all-in-one solution for authoring, presenting, managing, tracking, and continuously improving customer, partner, and employee education initiatives at scale. An industry pioneer, Intellum created the world's first customer education platform, which is utilized by a wide range of organizations across industries including advertising technology, retail, healthcare and financial services. 

The Intellum platform is uniquely positioned to help clients address pandemic-related gaps in user engagement through education, live events, and community. And it’s these distinct offerings that propelled Intellum’s rapid growth over the past two years. 

"The pandemic fundamentally altered how we communicate and engage with our customers, partners, and employees. But we have found inspiration in our team’s ability to discover new ways to leverage the Intellum platform to help customers overcome these unexpected challenges. Helping customers has not only been a reward unto itself, it has led to significant and positive growth" said Chip Ramsey, CEO, Intellum. "Winning the Inc. 5000 award is an honor and highlights the perseverance of our employees and our customers. It’s because of them that we are celebrating one of the biggest pockets of growth in our 21 year history."

As an example of Intellum’s continued innovation, the company hosted more than 50 virtual events on its platform in 2020, including massive user conferences for global brands like Facebook, Adobe, Zoom and Gainsight, who had to quickly pivot plans for annual in-person events. While supporting large scale virtual events was not part of the pre-pandemic Intellum offering, it was an urgent need that Intellum solved for clients. By delivering a solution for large virtual events, the company created an even stronger, more valuable education platform for its clients. Efforts to support virtual events not only led to Intellum nearly doubling its global workforce in 2020, but also contributed to the company’s 165% growth in revenue from 2017-2020, a main factor for Inc. 5000 award consideration. 

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

In addition to the Inc. 5000 award, Intellum is also the proud winner of a 2021 Pacesetter Award from the Atlanta Business Chronicle for being one of Atlanta’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the third year in a row. The company is also an equally proud winner of the TrustRadius Top Rated Corporate Learning Management award for customer satisfaction in 2021 and Leader in the Corporate and Enterprise LMS category for G2.com, Inc.

Methodology

Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to three decimal places. There was one tie on this year’s Inc. 5000.  Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
