Posted on 09.03.21

For the second year in a row, Aptive appears on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, ranking No. 799. The list represents a unique look at successful companies within the American economy. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for the growth in services we provide to the federal government,” said Aptive CEO Rachele Cooper. “We’ve expanded our ability to address complex issues and managing intricate government programs. This achievement helps validate the hard work of our employees during an especially challenging year.”

Based in Alexandria, Virginia, Aptive leverages human centered design and a data-centric approach to advance business transformation and operational excellence, resulting in a three-year growth rate of 607 percent. In a time of heightened uncertainty, Aptive stands out as a small business innovator in the federal health care, marketing and digital solutions sectors.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
