August 15, 2023 | Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This morning, Inc. Magazine recognized Bullpen Strategy Group (BSG) on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. Founded in 2019, BSG has experienced dynamic growth over the past four years, now counting some 50 team members across three offices in Washington, D.C., Texas, and London.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating a host of post-pandemic challenges. Among this year’s top 5000 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1.1 million jobs to the economy over the past three years. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Making the Inc. 5000 is a tremendous accomplishment for our team, and a great testament to BSG’s focus on executing on behalf of our clients each and every day,” said BSG CEO Joe Pounder. “The best part is, we’ve only just begun our journey at BSG. We look forward to continuing to build on this milestone. We’re investing in data, adding expertise, and expanding our service offerings to help our clients achieve their objectives and address the many challenges businesses face today.”

Earlier this year, BSG launched its first two subsidiaries: Look Ahead Strategies, a specialized, full-service communications and research firm serving political, policy, and issue advocacy clients, and Kyber Research, which is dedicated to assisting clients with requesting and retrieving public records from across the United States and the world.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
