A handful of companies tied to the cannabis industry are among the fastest-growing private businesses in the United States, according to the annual Inc. 5,000 rankings.
Among the marijuana companies on the list, released this week by Inc. magazine:
- Media and events company Marijuana Business Daily ranks No. 528, posting an 843% spike in revenue over the past three years
- Construction firm Your Green Contractor (No. 535 with 839% revenue growth)
- Software provider MJ Freeway (No. 1,506 with 270% revenue growth)
- Extraction equipment manufacturer Apeks Supercritical (No. 2,248 with 163% revenue growth)
Last year, several companies in the marijuana sector – MJBizDaily, Apeks, Leafly and GrowersHouse.com – made the Inc. 500, a subset of the larger Inc. 5,000 list.
It appears no marijuana companies made the Inc. 500 this year.
