Inc. magazine released its definitive ranking of the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States, a list that has given national exposure and recognition to now-ubiquitous companies such as Zappos, Patagonia and even Microsoft for the first time.

The Inc. 5000, released in August, one of the most prestigious rankings in the nation for independent small businesses, placed Cage Point LLC—founded by Shattuck Groome, MBA ’00—No. 44 on the 2020 list.

Cage Point LLC is a media agency that specializes in research, communications planning and targeted media across all platforms. Their strategy is a people-focused approach, connecting brands to their target audience through media and data driven technology.

Groome said making the Inc. 5000 “reinforces (Cage Point’s) dedication to forming true partnerships with clients.”

Cage Point LLC made the Inc. 5000 by exhibiting an unprecedented three-year revenue growth of 6,467%. This places it above the median growth rate for the Inc. 5000 list, which lands at 165%.
