It is a testament to the power of part-time professionals in helping small businesses grow on a budget. An increasing number of businesses are benefiting from this often ignored but highly skilled talent pool,” said Ellen Grealish, FlexProfessionals co-founder and partner. “In addition, we practice what we preach by having a team that runs and manages the company entirely on a part-time basis. I’m not sure any other company on the Inc 5000 list can make that claim. FlexProfessionals is a great example of how adopting a part-time work model can help accelerate business growth.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
