A total of 53 Wisconsin companies made the 2021 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in America. Inc. magazine unveiled the list today.

The top Wisconsin company on the list is Verona-based Gentueri, a producer of non-invasive sexual assault collection kits. Founded in 2012, the company had a three-year growth rate of 3,688%, according to Inc. magazine.

The top-ranked southeastern Wisconsin company on the list is Milwaukee-based short-term rental company Frontdesk. The company had a 3,012% three-year growth rate, according to Inc. magazine.

Frontdesk targets short-term business and personal travelers, leasing apartments in upscale neighborhoods and then subletting them to guests and providing on-site management of the properties. Frontdesk is present in 35 U.S. markets and in more than 160 buildings with over 700 fully managed suites. The business added Austin, Philadelphia and Nashville to its footprint in spring and expects to double its portfolio this year, said Jesse DePinto, co-founder and chief product officer.

DePinto says Frontdesk will become profitable in 2022, although the company has been operationally profitable and doubled its growth in 2020.

Earlier this month, Frontdesk announced that it had closed on a $7 million round of funding and is on pace to become profitable in 2022. The funding round represents the largest fundraise to date for Frontdesk, bringing its total raised capital to $18 million.
