For the 2nd Time, CompanyCam Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 629 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 766 Percent

Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies — the Inc. 5000

NEW YORK, August 17, 2021Inc. magazine revealed today that CompanyCam is No. 629 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 — 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.

This accomplishment boils down to our people,” says Luke Hansen, Founder and CEO of CompanyCam. They are the reason we are in this position, and I’m so proud of our explosive growth in this crazy year.”

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 — a number CompanyCam far surpassed at 766 percent — and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at inc​.com/​i​n​c5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.

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

CompanyCam Secures $6M Investment

Nebraska-based construction startup set for growth and product development.

CompanyCam, the Lincoln-based documentation and communication app for contractors, has secured a $6M Series A funding round led by Blueprint Equity, a growth equity fund based in San Diego, CA.

When asked for a quote about the funding, Founder and CEO of CompanyCam, Luke Hansen replied only by reciting a line from one his favorite movies, Dumb and Dumber, We’re really doing it Harry!”

This investment comes as CompanyCam celebrates its fifth year in business. With a solid and loyal user base, the construction-minded app will use the funds to accelerate its rapid growth, expand functionality, and grow its in-house and remote teams to meet consumer demands for additional features.

The news of this Series A investment accompanies another major announcement from CompanyCam — the app is now completely free for small companies — up to three users and fifty saved projects. Not only has CompanyCam released a free version of their product, they’ve also rolled out CompanyCam Pro. For $19/​user per month, companies on CompanyCam Pro can have unlimited users and projects, as well as access to unlimited video capture and integration plug-ins for industry CRMs, invoicing software, and more.

Letting customers use CompanyCam for free is key to our long-term vision of being the best way for contractors to work together in capturing field data and putting it to work,” says Levi Nelson, COO of CompanyCam. It lowers the barrier for potential customers to see the value of CompanyCam and also paves the way for exciting collaborative enhancements to come.”

We are very excited to be partners with CompanyCam,” says Bobby Ocampo, Managing Partner of Blueprint Equity. The construction space – particularly the businesses CompanyCam serves – is massive yet highly fragmented; CompanyCam has grown tremendously serving small to medium-sized customers that have traditionally been underserved.”

CompanyCam is eager to keep momentum and continue to release new features, refine their core product, and continue growing — both their user base and their company in Lincoln, NE.
