IGEL Recognized as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

For the second year in a row, IGEL appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking #1,399, representing a three-year revenue growth of 339% percent

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17, 2021 – IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, today announced that for the second year in a row, it is being recognized as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies as part of the Inc. 5000 list. Published by Inc. magazine, the annual 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. IGEL ranked #1,399 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list, representing three-year revenue growth of 339% percent.

Led by CEO Jed Ayres, IGEL is a leader in transforming the way businesses optimize their use of cloud-delivered digital workspaces. Aligning itself with the world’s most prominent cloud workspace providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Citrix, Microsoft and VMware, IGEL simplifies and secures the cloud-delivery of all needed applications and resources for today’s modern end-user computing environments. This has driven an expansive growth trajectory for IGEL, which has reported triple-digit growth over the past five years in billings, margin, and units. For the year ending December 31, 2020, IGEL increased revenues from recurring software products and services by over 150% year-over-year worldwide, supported by IGEL’s growing partner ecosystem.

“The new work-from-anywhere paradigm has changed the workplace forever – work is now defined by what we do, not where we go,” said Ayres. “At the center of this EUC revolution is IGEL, offering solutions that enable the cost-effective delivery of secure and simple to manage cloud workspaces. The investments we have made over the last three years are paying off significantly, and driving unprecedented growth for IGEL and our partners. We are pleased to be recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies as part of the 2021 Inc. 5000 list, and grateful for our employees, our partners and our customers for believing in IGEL.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-Chief, 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.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
