For the first time, Wyncode Academy appears on Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list with a three-year revenue growth of 77.27%

MIAMI, August 12, 2020– Inc. magazine today revealed that Wyncode Academy appears for the first time in its annual Inc. 5000 list, 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Wyncode is incredibly proud to be part of this year’s Inc. 5000 list,” said Johanna Mikkola, CEO and Co-Founder of Wyncode Academy, “Wyncode dedicates itself to expanding tech education opportunities across South Florida and beyond, and we are proud to have grown substantially while keeping this mission at Wyncode’s heart over the past three years.”

This honor marks Wyncode Academy’s 7th major award in its 6 years of operation, adding to their resume which includes the Beacon Council Educator of the Year award, the South Florida Business Journal Startup of the Year award, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Contribution to South Florida, and its selection as an Endeavor Company.

Fusion Recruiting Labs, a company founded by Wyncode Academy alumnus Alex McKeown, also returns to the list for a second year. FusionRL builds employment tools that accelerate hiring processes and increase the efficiency of recruitment advertising campaigns for the fast-growing needs of Human Resources Departments.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
