Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of
America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
SAN FRANCISCO, August 25, 2021 – LendingHome, one of the nation’s largest lenders to real estate investors, today announced that Inc. magazine included the company in the publication’s annual Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the U.S. 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.
“We’re grateful to our customers, the real estate investors who partnered with us and helped make LendingHome one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States,” said CEO Michael Bourque. “ We know our customers appreciate the speed, reliability, and tech-forward simplicity we bring to helping them fund their projects and scale their business. In a market where finding affordable, move-in ready homes is extremely difficult, we’re proud to support real estate investors as they revitalize homes, making them available to more families across the country.”
LendingHome has rapidly become one of the country’s top destinations for real estate investors to go when their goal is to buy, renovate and either sell the home for profit or rent it. Founded in 2013, the company has funded more than 35,000 projects and funded $7.8 billion in loans. LendingHome’s growth was driven largely by the company’s skillful application of artificial intelligence and data analytics and incorporating them into a single custom-built digital platform designed to transform the lending process for customers – making it faster and more transparent than ever.
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
