WILMINGTON, Del., August 15, 2023 – This week, Best Egg, a leading fintech that provides flexible solutions to help people with limited savings confidently navigate their everyday financial life, was named by Inc. to the 2023 Inc. 5000. This annual list, compiled by Inc., ranks the fastest-growing private companies in America, offering a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Best Egg sits alongside many other household name brands such as Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia which gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Being named to the 2023 Inc. 5000 reflects the Best Egg team’s unwavering commitment to growth over the past three years,” said Paul Ricci, CEO at Best Egg. “Our efforts to remove friction, offer consumers more flexibility, and increase access to responsible lending products and financial health tools have helped us accelerate to $26 billion in personal loan originations and 2.9 million accounts since the platform’s inception in March 2014. We look forward to driving continued growth in the years to come, helping our customers be money confident.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 5000 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added about 1.2 million jobs to the economy over the past three years.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-chief at Inc. “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.”
