Baltimore-based digital agency idfive ranks among the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the country according to Inc. Magazine’s 2016 list.

The Inc. 5,000 list ranks privately owned businesses based on the past three year’s revenue growth. idfive took the #34 spot among Baltimore businesses and the #64 spot among Maryland businesses. Overall the Baltimore company is 2,855 on the list.

From 2012 to 2015 idfive had 122% growth, built their team from 12 employees to 32 and expanded their client base nationally. The agency specializes in marketing, advertising and web services for higher education, nonprofit and healthcare clients, and is known for its commitment to a healthy work/life balance.

“Before our last few years of growth we spent several years laying the groundwork for a successful company,” said Andres Zapata, idfive’s EVP of Strategy and Co-founder. “But the real credit goes to our team and our clients. Without either we wouldn’t be where we are today. It’s an honor to make the Inc. 5,000 list.”

Additionally, in the past year alone idfive has been recognized for their advertising work, company culture, and their staggering growth. Both Baltimore Magazine and the Baltimore Business Journal voted idfive a Best Place to Work.

“From day one we set out to build a company we could be proud of,” said Zapata. “Our supportive culture, our work with mission-based clients and our commitment to excellence is all by design. This focus has helped us get to where we are today.”
