10Pearls has been recognized for a second consecutive year in the annual Inc. 5000 list, ranking among the region’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the D.C. area economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional 10Pearls’ inclusion in the list for a second year in a competitive market points to high demand for its services.

“This accomplishment speaks volumes about the commitment of our entire team at 10Pearls. We are proud to be the go-to partner for businesses in the DC metro area – and around the world, who are looking to lean on a holistic partner that provides both product expertise as well as technology depth,” said Imran Aftab, CEO of 10Pearls. “The fact that we can help with not just acceleration, but innovative and emerging technologies (AI, ML, Blockchain, etc) enables us to be the strategic digital outsourcing partner of choice.”

The 250 companies enlisted in the Inc 5000 list achieved the following milestones:

  • Average growth rate of 211% between 2017 and 2019
  • Collectively employed more than 120,000 people in 2019 alone
  • Added nearly $15 billion to the D.C. area economy

Companies based in major metro areas—Baltimore, Maryland, the Washington, D.C. area, and Richmond, Virginia—brought in the highest revenue overall. “This list proves the power of companies in the Washington, D.C. area no matter the industry. The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs, and that these businesses are here to stay,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk.
