Sep 18, 2018

For the Fourth Time, Curiosity Advertising Appears on the Inc. 5000

NEW YORK – Inc. magazine revealed that Curiosity Advertising earned a place on the 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. “It’s always such an honor to earn a spot on the Inc. 5000,” says Curiosity’s CEO Matt Fischer. “Only one in six of companies who have made the list are able to do so four times, so this is a particularly exciting accomplishment for Curiosity this year. We are grateful to our incredible staff and our wonderful clients!”

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
