There are 49 Wisconsin companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in America. The list was released today by Inc. magazine.

Madison-based logistics technology company SwanLeap, which was ranked #1 on the Inc. 5000 list in 2018, is the highest-ranked Wisconsin company on the 2019 list, checking in at #35 this year.

“To be named for a third time among America’s greatest entrepreneurs is an unspeakable honor,” said SwanLeap chief executive officer and co-founder Brad Hollister, “Finding ourselves at the number one spot for 2018 brought a lot of validation to our team’s hard work. Continuing on the list for a third year speaks to the maturity and long term offering that SwanLeap brings to the world of supply chain.”
