DENVER, CO (August 15, 2023) – Pax8, the leading cloud commerce marketplace, today announced it has been recognized by Inc. for the sixth time, securing the 1038th ranking on the 2023 Inc. 5000 list, with a three-year revenue growth of 571 percent. The Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America that are credited with driving rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Well-known companies, such as Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia, among others, gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“In the past three years, our company’s growth has been nothing short of extraordinary as the future of Pax8 holds even greater promise to becoming the world’s favorite cloud marketplace,” said John Street, Chief Executive Officer at Pax8. “This esteemed recognition is a powerful reminder to persistently pursue unrivaled excellence as we ardently work towards creating the next evolution of our cloud marketplace for businesses worldwide.”
Established in 2012, Pax8 was an early pioneer to the market with its cloud marketplace, capitalizing on the growing number of managed service providers (MSPs), vendors, and small to medium-sized businesses transitioning to cloud technology. Through a series of strategic business acquisitions, Pax8 achieved impressive organic and acquired growth, expanding its footprint globally into the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) and APAC (Asia-Pacific) regions while tripling its workforce. During this time, the company reached a valuation of $1.7 billion, secured $185 million in investment, and surpassed the milestone of $1 billion in annual recurring revenue (ARR).
Currently, Pax8 provides cloud products and services to approximately 30,000 MSPs across 17 countries, collaborates with over 90 vendors (with the number steadily increasing each month), and serves 300,000+ businesses spanning 52 countries.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. Editor-in-Chief Scott Omelianuk. “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.”
