Inc. magazine today revealed that DockYard, a digital product consultancy specializing in user-centered web application design and development, is No. 863 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American 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.

“The past few years have brought about tremendous growth for DockYard and we’re honored to be included among industry disruptors for the second consecutive year as part of the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies,” said Jon Lacks, CEO, DockYard. “Our success has been fueled by our work with visionary companies to create more meaningful web experiences for their users.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
