Otus is thrilled to share its inclusion in the 2023 Inc. 5000 list, which celebrates America’s fastest-growing private companies annually. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. Otus stands out as one of the select 1% of companies on the Inc. 5000 list representing the education industry.

“Earning a spot on the Inc. 5000 list is a reflection of the relentless dedication and passion of the Otus team,” said Chris Hull, President and Co-founder of Otus. “Over the years, we’ve strived to enhance our platform, ensuring it meets the evolving needs of educators and learners alike. But our commitment goes beyond technology; it’s about providing world-class service and support to every Otus user. This recognition is a reminder that when we prioritize the success of our users, success as a company naturally follows.”

Over the past year, Otus has achieved significant milestones, including the launch of its advanced analytics and new student and family gradebooks, both of which offer increased visibility and simplify the way stakeholders can follow student progress and growth. Following the unveiling of its new AI-powered question generator, Otus aims to continue to integrate AI enhancements to its platform, furthering its mission to ensure every student thrives. Through building meaningful partnerships with leading educational institutions, such as Skyward, Otus has continued to provide new integrations and an improved experience to its users.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years. 

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Scott Omelianuk, Inc. editor-in-chief. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
